Herps…

Sarah and I walked yesterday afternoon 4:30ish.  Warm, sunny, breezy… glorious.  Bluebird pair investigating boxes on the Big Field.  And herps…

Goose and Turtles - by Jeff TomeSpring Peepers going crazy in the ponds.  And a lone Leopard Frog calling.  A big fat Bullfrog.  Lots of Painted Turtles.

We walked out to the Vernal Pool to see if we had missed the salamander run.  There were Jefferson eggs, some spermataphore… but no sign of Spotted Salamanders yet, nor even of Wood Frogs.  Yay!  We haven’t missed it.

  1. What a splash of springtime!
    Nice knowing that inevitable spring will be happening here when I return in a couple weeks, as I watch the snow fall thickly in these Boundary Waters woods.
