CAPE ANN VERNAL POND FIELD TRIP TONIGHT – THURSDAY APRIL 13TH
We had a great field trip last night to Ravenswood Park. A few spotted sals seen migrating – even though it wasn’t raining the ground was still wet from the afternoon rain. Lots of peepers calling and breeding, good wood frog chorus. Lots of congressing sals in the pool. Spermatophores and eggs. Fairy shrimp, caddisfly larva, red-backed salamander and a predaceous diving beetle. What else do you need really?
Still need volunteers for next week’s snake shows.
I’m expecting some good action at the pools tonight, so there will be a field trip. Meet at Walgreen’s at 9 pm.
See you there, Rick
We are adding more photographs from the nighttime field trips so check them out…
