Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted.

Fagus Crenata[edit]

Hello Alpsdake,

I am looking to get seeds from the Fagus Crenata. Do you know where i can get them?

There are two nuts in the fruits of Fagus crenata.
Fagus Crenata has two nuts in the fruits. I am sorry, they were not seeds but nuts.--Alpsdake (talk) 19:23, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Anas penelope photos[edit]

Hi Alpsdake - you have added a very nice set of photos in Category:Anas penelope, but they do not have any location information other than 'Japan'. Could you add some extra detail of where in Japan they were taken, please? Either a place name, or coordinates. That would greatly increase the scientific value of the photos. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 10:29, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi MPF - I added the detail for the photos.--Alpsdake (talk) 22:52, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks! - MPF (talk) 13:04, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

tree identity in File:Prunella rubida (singing on Abies mariesii).jpg[edit]

Hi Alpsdake - I changed the identity of the tree the bird is perched on and renamed the file, as it is Abies mariesii, not Pinus pumila. Can you check the Japanese text, please? Thanks! - MPF (talk) 19:19, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi MPF - Thank you for the rename, I renamed the Japanese text from 這松 to 大白檜曽.--Alpsdake (talk) 20:05, 24 March 2014 (UTC)


Hello Alpsdake, again thanks for your wonderful set of Myrmechis japonica.
These photos are deposited a long time as unidentified Orchidaceae:
File:Parasitic (?) orchid on a tree 1.JPG
File:Parasitic (?) orchid on a tree 3.JPG and
File:Parasitic (?) orchid on a tree 2.JPG
Possibly Myrmechis?? Never I saw plants of the genus Myrmechis. Can you help to identify the plants of these pictures?
Thanks and best greetings. Orchi (talk) 15:52, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello Orchi. I am sorry, I can't identify this species.--Alpsdake (talk) 09:13, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello Alpsdake, thanks you for your quick response. Orchi (talk) 17:24, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Bird Photo Use in App[edit]

Hello Alpsdake,

I'm the creator and co-owner of a new birding App, Kea: Learn Birds Through Play. I wanted to take the time to thank you for allowing your photography to be used as public domain. Our App is only possible because of your generosity, and we deeply appreciate the contribution your beautiful photos have made to our App and the birding community as a whole.

I thought you might also appreciate information on where and how your photographs are being used. Feel free to cite us on your resume, or for any publicity purposes. Kea is free to download and play on iPhone and iPad, with our Android version coming out this fall, and we would love to have you check it out and see your work in action.

To provide a bit more background information, Kea uses a series of different games that help users recognize images of birds, rather than rote memorization. As a level is passed, the user earns tokens that can be used to unlock new levels, modes, and habitats. Users start with 'Backyard Birds' levels, to allow them to recognize the birds they are most likely to see close to home. A user can also play with levels organized according to taxonomy, rather than habitat. They can use their learning to unlock all the birds in North America, Europe, and Costa Rica including Pelagic species and Rarities. For more advanced birders, modes can be unlocked to learn the scientific names of all species, or in a Timed Mode that sharpens rapid identification skills.

As one of the people who made this App possible, we are also very interested in your feedback on the App, and the direction you would like to see the App go in the future. Feel free to email me at any time if you are interested in testing the App and providing more formal feedback.

Thank you again for your generous contribution of images, and we hope you enjoy their use in Kea.

Best, Chris Duke
