For an ecologist the world outside, in our own backyard, reveals so much. While a poet might see the beauty, a photographer can appreciate the patterns, and an engineer can consider structural function; the ecologist can celebrate the principles of nature history at play.
For an ecologist the bird at the feeder can reveal type of habitat, nesting possibilities, predators, and the passage of seasons. The crowd at the bird bath implies something about availability of water, recent weather conditions, and wildlife community. "Some Backyard Natural Resources" is designed to share an ecologist's point of view through cell phone images readily taken by anyone.
