Fourth of July may be a little quieter this year, and that's good for wildlife. It could be your chance to celebrate our nation's independence by taking in some of nature's light show - on display nightly long before 1776. #RecreateResponsibly https://t.co/mdcOMfZMlA https://t.co/CAD9K2MY7T

Today is #WorldUFODay, 👽 when everyone is invited to look at the sky in search of unidentified flying objects. At night, you might see some small objects flying silently around the sky - they might be bats! 🦇 Learn more: https://t.co/SKe4vWshQ2 Photo:@USFWS https://t.co/YPxdmfVN5I

If you travel to south Texas, you might catch a glimpse of the colorful green jay. They may look like something that would stand out, but the jays’ greens and yellows blend into the leafy tree canopies they inhabit.

As the hot weather kicks in, wetlands across the country are alive with dragonflies and their relatives, damselflies. One way to tell them apart: When at rest, a dragonfly holds its wings open, like this Western pondhawk. A damselfly closes its wings.

Great blue herons are widely distributed throughout the continental United States, and they eat a wide variety of wetland prey near ponds, streams, lakes, rivers, marshes and coastlines, including frogs, snakes and, yes, fish.

Here's the first Puerto Rican parrot that has flown out of a nest at El Yunque National Forest since before hurricanes Irma and Maria.

#PollinatorWeek reminds us that our future flies with healthy pollinators. Pollinators play a part in producing one out of every three bites of food consumed, including berries, pumpkins, potatoes, almonds and chocolate.

We interrupt #PollinatorWeek to show off the lovely Pacific chorus frog. As it name suggests, its “krrreck” call is well-known where it lives, almost anywhere along the Pacific. Pacific tree frogs secrete a waxy substance that keeps their skin moist.

One of our key challenges is to meet people where they live and work, and help them connect with the outdoors and nature. That often means conservation in cities. Read about our work in cities and more in Fish & Wildlife News. https://t.co/4kOIbpqh07 https://t.co/1wXYLFKgTz
