The risk to ones safety has been such, that I have been limited in my outings to the field for the past couple months. I will state there is only so much that can be learned from live specimens kept in the labatory. More so, when all of them have been captive bred for several generations now. Non urbanized domesticated soot faeries while being my second favorite "rainy day" study never provide riveting insight on ecological nitch fulfillment.
So the return of rain here at my dwellings is a delight. It has rained a solid 2 inches according to the beaker I left outside to collect the down pour. My excitement has only been matched by the pond pixies who had burrowed themselves into the mud at the bottom of my garden pond several months ago. While seeming callus, the prospects of exploring the fire damaged habitats of Faeries is quite exciting to me. I am looking forward to seeing how they respond to the change in their environment and if this event will effect their natural breeding cycles.
It would be reasoned, now would in fact be the best time to begin placing new feeding stations up. Not only to help sustain the surviving populations but to see what new creatures the fires might of drove towards the urban areas.
Until my pen meets paper,
