“What’s the number one mistake web3 builders make?”

Here is what they said ↓ Image
Before we dive in, here's a high-level view at the results.

I started by categorizing the answers into three primary buckets.

↪️ People: Who is building the product
↪️ Process: How the product comes to life

Here are the most common web3 mistakes made within the "People" category.

👉Où vont nicher les #vanneaux hivernants en #Vendée ?
Un programme la Direction de la #Recherche et de l’Appui Scientifique l' @OFBiodiversite .
Et toujours un régal de travailler avec mon collègue Emmanuel Joyeux !
#ornithologie #scicom #Chanteloup
👀 En hiver, si vous êtes attentifs, vous pourrez voir dans les champs des groupes plus ou moins grands de vanneaux huppés.
Prenez le temps de les observer, le détail de leur plumage et leur huppe valent le détour !
#ornithologie @OFBiodiversite
Cet hiver, en #Vendée, on a équipé des vanneaux de GPS pour connaître leur utilisation de l’habitat diurne et nocturne en hivernage ainsi que leur futur lieu de nidification. 🪶

1. On the occasion of #WetlandDay, here is a #thread on Reeds(varieties of tall aquatic grass) that grow in wetlands or marshy grounds. Reedbeds support a large variety of birds sp. eg, the Bitterns

#WetlandWonders #IndiAves #birdphotography #birding #birdwatching #NatureBeauty
2. Reeds are also home to some elusive species like the crakes & the rails (Family: Rallidae). Commonly seen Grey-headed Swamphen and Common moorhen are also belong to the same family.

#WetlandWonders #IndiAves
#birdphotography #birding #birdwatching #NatureBeauty #nature
3. Reedbeds are favorite among the herons. The Purple herons are always there along with their cousin Pond herons. Egrets and Cormorants are also found throughout the year around the reeds.

For those of you trying to add a few final birds to your year list, here are some hot tips. #birding
(All photos mine. No for real.) [a thread]
To add a Cackling Goose to your list, find a Canada Goose and back up thirty feet. Boom, Cackling Goose! You’re welcome. #birding
To add a Neotropic Cormorant, find a Double-crested Cormorant and back up thirty feet. Boom, got one! Treat yourself to a daiquiri. (because of the tropical thing) #birding

Una travesía transoceánica en barco de NUEVE búhos nivales.

Además, muchos lemings, "invasiones" en USA, citas en Europa, más viajes en barco o crisis climática. Todo lo que querías saber sobre los búhos nivales y no te atreviste a preguntar. #hilo

#birds #birding #birdwatching
Tras la aparición de tres búhos nivales en el norte de España, algo insólito, surgen muchas preguntas acerca de su procedencia y futuro. Para ayudar a resolverlas debemos conocer aspectos importantes de su historia natural, remontándonos además años atrás.
"9 de diciembre de 2013. El carguero MSC Monterey transporta contenedores de Nueva York a Bremerhaven, Alemania. Se sitúa a 50 kilómetros al sur de Terranova y recibe la inesperada visita de nueve búhos nivales, dos machos y siete hembras, agotados."

At Chhapar, a sleepy village 4 hours from Jaipur, life for the birds is high energy and high stress. A constant battle for survival. This black-winged kite flew from a distant perch to come close to me. He was carrying a skink. Sequence follows.

Yesterday's got a leucistic Jungle Babbler @ Ayodhya #IndiAves
In leucistic birds, affected plumage lacks melanin pigment due to the cells responsible for melanin production being absent. #birdwatching #nature #BirdsSeenIn2021 #BBCWildlifePOTD @Avibase @ThePhotoHour
2/n #IndiAves
This results in a white feathers, unless the normal plumage colour also comprises carotenoids (e.g. yellows), which remain unaffected by the condition. Although leucism is inherited, the extent and positioning of the white colouration
3/n #IndiAves
can vary between adults and their young, and can also skip generations if leucistic genes are recessive.
The reduction of pigment in leucistic birds causes feathers to weaken and be more prone to wear.

White-rumped Snowfinch (Onychostruthus taczanowskii) is one of the two species of Snowfinches that can be seen reliably in India only in the Tibetan Plateau region of North Sikkim, generally above 4500 meters (the other being Rufous-necked Snowfinch)
White-rumped Snowfinch associate very strongly with Black-lipped Pika or Plateau Pika , the most abundant mammal in this cold desert. Their burrows are used for nesting and also used for roosting, particularly by the juveniles.

Here is a Ground Tit, alongside a yak dung pat, from the cold plateau around Gurudongmar, North Sikkim.

Dung of large herbivores, particularly that of Domestic Yak has an important place in the grassland ecology of this high plateau. Dungs increases the abundance of arthropods particularly the larvae of coleopteran beetles which are consumed by a number of species of birds.
Many birds are often found close to areas with an abundance of dung pats. Ground Tits have long and curved beaks to probe into the dung pats and the soil around it for insects.
