Sightings
Walking Rocks?

Query: When I was in Death Valley earlier this year, I saw some enormous 750-pound rocks that appear to travel across the desert on their own. I remembered your article about rock tortoises, and wondered if that’s what these rocks could be?

Corn of Plenty (Part 4 of 4): A Field Guide by Dr. Midas Welby

Corns of the Air: Air-corns utilize their horns for jousting, playing tic-tac-toe, and spearing food in mid-flight. Air-corns often lurk undetected in trees, wood piles, and rain gutters. When bored, they use their horns to ring the doorbells of unsuspecting humans. When the door begins to open, the air-corn flies away.

Going On Hiatus

December 6, 2014: I am loving college, but I have to admit, I’m overwhelmed.

Pine Cone Feeders

A Present For Imaginaries: When winter comes, I get concerned about providing extra shelter from the elements for Imaginaries. Recently, I read about people who build wildlife brush shelters out of branches and plants in their yards, and thought this was a great idea.

Accepting An Imaginary As An Imaginary

October 6, 2014: We are reporting the sighting of a possible new Imaginary species this month. We ask all of you to be alert for any sighting of a Cyclops bird, of any description, as you continue your observation activities on behalf of Iranigami.

Sometimes an Imaginary is glimpsed only once, and never seen again. Although we note these Imaginaries in our records, we only record them as a possible new Imaginary species. It takes three verifiable sightings before we change the status of an Imaginary from Possible to Confirmed.

As far as we know, Iranigami has the most comprehensive archive of Imaginary sightings in the world. These archives are scattered around the world, maintained by a network of Iranigami Annalists like Gwyneach, who maintains the “Annals” column at this website.

Back in the days when everything was done by hand, early record-keeping was clumsy and hit-or-miss. Also, many records were lost or destroyed over the centuries due to fire, mold, and poor curatorial methods, and many of the older records that still survive are in very fragile condition. As a result, not only are there are gaps in our records as they stand, some of the articles we have now are in danger of being lost forever, due to the natural deterioration of age.

Fortunately for us, we live in the age of computers. The Annalists of Iranigami, supported by a number of dedicated Iranigami supporters, have begun the process of transferring all of our records to the computer, with the intention of cataloguing and cross-referencing the enormous amount of material we have once everything has been entered to the electronic record.

The task is enormous. It could be years before we have everything entered, catalogued and cross-referenced. In the meantime, we rely upon the prodigious memories of our Annalists to help us in our work.

Sometimes an Imaginary is glimpsed only once, and never seen again. Although we note these Imaginaries in our records, we only record them as a possible new Imaginary species. It takes three verifiable sightings before we change the status of an Imaginary from Possible to Confirmed. - XAX, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
