    Doesn't work for me.... Are any of these new frog in high risk zones? Do they need immediate attention or they'll die out?

    Maybe try to google Journal of Threatened Taxa and then go to the issue of 13 March 2013
    It's a quite long article with many photos and drawings

    I'll look it up. Mostly because my email contains my entire name so I don't want it getting out there some how. You know, just to be safe, not that I suspect you of bad intentions!

    On April 8 2013 some bird-spotters were counting birds in Flavoland and saw a strange bird. Some good photos were taken of the bird and with the help of these photos the birds has been indentified as being a Common Grackle ( Quiscalus quiscula ssp. versicolor ).
    Because this North American species is not knowingly kept or bred by aviculturists the change that this bird is escaped is very small.
    This is the first time this species has been seen in the Netherlands and only the second time for Europe, in 1970 a Common Grackle was observed in Denmark.

    What on earth does that have to do with a rare vagrant bird being spotted in the Netherlands?

    Clidonias is right, I meant to post that in the lionfish thread, sorry. I made the mistake by visiting this thread first, then going to the lionfish thread, and I suppose I went back to here without realizing it and posted that here. Again sorry.:eek:
