Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world. 
 

For general science, chemistry, genetics, or evolution, please post in the Science! group. For posts on animal rights and welfare, please post in Animal Care. For cosmology, please post in The Daily Cosmos. For green living, sustainability, and environmental activism, please post in the Green Atheists group.

They seem quite at home in those surroundings, don't they.

An entire herd of deer has taken over an                 empty corner of east London

Lockdown might be taking its toll on people all over the world, but the animals are loving it.
First, we had the herd of goats who’d taken over Welsh seaside town Llandudno and now a plucky group of deer are making themselves at home on the streets of Romford. Yes, really.

In more weird news, the animal takeover has been brought to our attention by none other than singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, who snapped these pictures of a load of deer hanging out in Harold Hill, east London.

They might be loving the sunshine but we’re not sure they’re sitting two metres apart – did they miss the social distancing memo? Oh deer (sorry).

Whilst getting some fresh air in my local park(We are still allowed to have some exercise and fresh air during the lockdown) I saw a Bird in a tree with highly coloured plumage and it also had a beautiful song, but what surprised me the most was just how small it was, hardly any bigger than a bumblebee. I looked it up on the internet when I got home and I think it was either a Goldcrest or Firecrest.
