Friday Ark #52

Cats, Dogs, Spiders and ? every Friday.

We'll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and....?

Alert: The Ark crew is still wandering around Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. They will make updates as time permits. Your expectations should be a bit low....

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Remember: Visit Each Boarder and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders.

Dog folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 78th edition will be hosted this week by Watermark. There are more weekly cats at eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants.

Bird folks: Remember to submit your links to I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers. The 6th edition is up and hosted by Bird Chick.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles will be posting its first edition on September 30 hosted by: Milk River Blog.

And, check out Laurence's fine graphical analysis of Friday Ark boardings.

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page and The TTLB Uber Carnival.

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

Birds in the News issue #27 features the Indian ring-necked parakeet, Psittacula krameri, sometimes referred to as a "posh pigeon" in Britain. Also included are pictures and stories about the California condor, Gymnogyps californianus, and the female bald eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus, who triggered a controversy about power plants in the state of Indiana.

My head is spinning, but another FNDB:
Where are your Wyoming photos? Fantastic scenery I believe.
