young fish and shrimps. The second section collects tutorials on
how to raise and harvest marine rotifers.

- Meteor showers are common - appearing every few weeks throughout
the year. The trick is to know which are the major shows, what
days, direction, time of night, and location to view them. Geminids
and Perseids are the reliables; Leonids is famous but
temperamental; Quadrantics are the dark horse. Follow them on
meteor calendar, learn their characters, avoid the moon and light
pollution, wait past mindnight for the bugs-on-the-windshield
effect, and bring a cup of hot chocolate.

- Despite colorful name like Nutmeg Mannikin (little man),
Scaly-breasted Munias are just agile, little, social birds, pecking
on grass seeds. First described in 1758 by pioneering Swedish
botanist Carl Linnaeus, A.K.A. Father of
Taxonomy, Lonchura punctulata originated from South Asia, but
now flies feral in southern U.S. It's an abundant species, and is
well studied by biologists.
