Fuckin' leeches, man. For all the time I spent squelching around in wildlife-habitat water, I'm surprised I only got one once. Took a long time to stop bleeding after I pulled it off. It was a little guy, though. Less than an inch long IIRC. Nothing like that shit.

Leeches are gross. I've never had one on me, fortunately.

I think the parasites in the video clip are young lampreys- parasitic jawless fish.

I think you're right. No segmentation and it looks like they have a fin-like structure around the tail-area.

Exactly. Although it would be hard to see segmentation of leeches in that video clip.

Saw somewhere (don't recall why I was looking it up) that it was thought that there were two species, the yellow-billed that's basically restricted to the pacific coast around California, and a common magpie (with a black bill) that has a range from the northern US through Asia to Europe. But DNA suggests that the yellow-billed magpie is closely related to the rest of the North American magpie populations, and that both are more distantly related to the Eurasian magpies. So while ours here in CO are a different species from the yellow-billed, they're close relatives, and probably get together sometimes to talk shit about the Eurasian magpie behind its specific back.

Did you just question his species identity? That's basically like playing a speech of Hitler's uncritically.

One of my favorite parts of this year is the sheer number of raptors visible near roadways. I've seen this guy, a piebald red tail hawk, several times recently. On the same day, a bald eagle made a low pass over my car.

I've been seeing a lot of hawks here, too. I need to get out there and get some life birds.

this is funny

I saw several bald eagles flying over and by the Potomac yesterday.

Cool. Couldn’t tell if those were lynx or bobcats. (Assuming that was North America)
