Plants. Lots of plants. I’m surprised that Veratrum viride is number one for me! Number 11 is Eastern Gray Squirrel, though.

The “identified” tally does not include identifications of one’s own observations. Just how iNaturalist runs.

Nothing but plants in my top 500! I am surprised to have some bird and insect identifications.

I wasn’t surprised it was largely North American herps but I was surprised Snapping Turtle was actually ahead of Common Garter Snake (and my actual favorite NA snake, the copperhead). I guess they’re just that easy to ID.

No surprises here. This pretty much summarizes my bird-identifying days.
What I find more interesting is everything excluding birds:

That is a fun twist!
If I exclude spiders, it indeed gets a bit surprising for me, as it is much more mixed. Would have thought most of the rest might be insects, but there is even one plant in there (admittably one of the easiest plants I guess :-))

All but one in my top 15 are, unsurprising, Euphorbias. An extremely common Texas Oenothera crept into the ranking, though. I am a little surprised that there are that many members of subg. Esula in the top 15. It makes sense as they are generally much easier to ID from photos than other Euphorbia groups, but also are less memorable to me.

Mostly owls in my top 15. The only surprise is how high up spurge nettle and coral bean are.

This was neat to look at and also not at all surprising! I primarily switch from a focus on snakes (or other herps) to a focus on birds rather than a focus on a specific location. The first non-herp/non-bird top ID is at 76!

I’m impressed with everyone else’s number of identifications here. It just tells me I need to procrastinate my work more by identifying on iNat (pretty easy lately), haha.
