ARE BUMBLE BEES EXTINCT

Adult chat rooms to meet adults Passenger Pigeon an Extinct SpeciesTHE PASSENGER PIGEONHow could the passenger pigeon be extinct when it was the most abundant bird species on Earth no so long agoIt is almost impossible to imagine that the passenger pigeons population which in the early 1800s contained more individuals than all other North American birds combined was reduced to just one individual Martha who died in captivity at the Cincinnati Zoo in 1914.Before their decimation a single flock of passenger pigeons could have 2 billions birds or more and there were multiple flocks of birds in the United States.When John J. Audubon observed a migrating flock over Kentucky in 1813 he reported that the sky was black with birds for three days.The nesting colonies of the passenger pigeon in northeastern deciduous forests could be 20 miles across with so many birds per tree that the branches broke from their weight. Yet there is not a single passenger pigeon left for us to observe today.The passenger pigeon was driven to extinction by uncontrolled commercial hunting for their meat which was desired by Euroamerican settlers.The passenger pigeons migration and nesting behavior made them easy to hunt in large numbers. They were netted shot and smoked out of trees with sulfur torches. Special firearms including a forerunner of the machine gun were used to harvest these birds in quantity.The growth of commercial

Wechat nude emotions Dodo Bird an Extinct SpeciesTHEThe dodo bird inhabited the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean where it lived undisturbed for so long that it lost its need and ability to fly. It lived and nested on the ground and ate fruits that had fallen from trees. There were no mammals on the island and a high diversity of bird species lived in the dense forests.In 1505 the Portuguese became the first humans to set foot on Mauritius. The island quickly became a stopover for ships engaged in the spice trade. Weighing up to 50 pounds the dodo bird was a welcome source of fresh meat for the sailors. Large numbers of dodo birds were killed for food.Later when the Dutch used the island as a penal colony pigs and monkeys were brought to the island along with the convicts. Many of the ships that came to Mauritius also had uninvited rats aboard some of which escaped onto the island.Before humans and other mammals arrived the dodo bird had little to fear from predators. The rats pigs and monkeys made short work of vulnerable dodo bird eggs in the ground nests.The combination of human dodo bird was a rare bird.The last Although the tale of the dodo birds demise is well documented no complete specimens of the bird were

Free sex chat email slut Earlynesting HumblebeeA common small species with a short tongue emerging in early spring and nesting below the surface of the ground though sometimes on the surface under objects or above the surface in cavities. This species nests particularly early in the year. It is less often seen in late summer and these records may often be for bees reared in secondary nests by queens produced earlier in the same year. In its nest structure Sladen 1912 describes it as a pollenstorer species. Colonies are small and relatively mild tempered when disturbed.Throughout Britain except on the Scilly Isles Outer Scottish Isles Orkneys and Shetland. Benton 2000 suggests that this species is becoming increasingly urban because it is intolerant of agricultural intensification. In Kent it remains widespread in farmland.

Cam sex zap Facts About Bumblebees January 13 2017 1057pm ETMORECredit Dan Mullen via Flickr Creative Commons licenseBumblebees are large fuzzy insects with short stubby wings. They are larger than honeybees but they dont produce as much honey. However they are very important pollinators. Without them food wouldnt grow.Twothirds of the worlds crop species depend on animals to transfer pollen between male and female flower parts according to ecologist Rachel Winfree an assistant professor in the department of entomology at Rutgers University. Many animals are pollinators including birds bats and butterflies but theres no question that bees are the most important in most ecosystems she said in a 2009 article in National Wildlife magazine.While other animals pollinate bumblebees are particularly good at it. Their wings beat 130 times or more per second according to the National Wildlife Federation and the beating combined with their large bodies vibrates flowers until they release pollen which is called buzz pollination. Buzz pollination helps plants produce more f

Reallifecam com gratuit Bee Nest Removal and Bumblebee NestsBee nest removal is not an easy task. It needs to be undertaken carefully especially where bumblebees are concerned.In any event mostly it is not necessary more about that in a moment.Bees nests depending on the type of bees vary greatly.Bumblebees like to make their nests in tussocks of grass or in abandoned rodent holes. However due to modern farming practices many bumblebees are having to compromise and a colony may even inhabit a bird box an old upturned plant pot or a space under the garden shed or some places that humans would consider to be inconvenient. Bumblebees live in small colonies however in the early part of the year the queen will establish the nest on her own so that workers only emerge from late spring and through the summer. If you see a number of similar fluffy bees entering and leaving the nest its likely to be bumblebees.However to find out about bee nest removal for other species such as honey bees see the link below.Bee Nest Removal Some

Sex chat obsession Bumblebees in ShetlandBumblebees are well known and popular insects. They are larger more rotund and more colourful than honeybees.

Another species has been recorded only once in Bressay in 1926 and is thought to be extinct although we cannot be sure. Two of the species which occur in Shetland are distinct subspecies. The Small Heath Bumblebee Bombus jonellus vogti only occurs in Shetland whilst the distinctive Shetland Bumblebee Bombus muscorum agricolae is a form that occurs in both Shetland and the Western Isles. Bumblebees are not just a colourful part of our insect fauna they are important pollinators of certain plant species and in Shetland may be a useful indicator of general environmental quality. For example the Small Heath Bum
