Animals of New England and New YorkWhile there are already a few (excellent) albums devoted to mountain fauna in general, as well as related themes like "butterflies" and "little critters", it might be interesting to collect in one place some examples of all the fauna of a particular geographic region.
So, here's an album for all the animals (including mammals, birds, insects, even fish) of New Hampshire's White Mountains, Vermont's Greens, New York's Adirondacks and Catskills, Massachusetts' Berkshires (which stretch into Connecticut), the border-spanning Taconics, and the various ranges of Maine. The goal is to create a complete visual catalogue, spanning alpine, transitional, and forest zones.
Just so we're concentrating on mountain fauna photos should be taken above, say, 3,000 feet above sea level.
When submitting to this album, please include in the caption both common name and species name, if possible, and the location and date of the photo, for easier searching.
