In the past few days, I have heard some wood frogs, spring peepers, seen a few spotted salamanders.  So far, we are not exactly having the Big Night experience you may have heard about, but the Big Trickle effect you may be fasmiliar with if you’ve done this for a few years.  But, I think there will be some good action in some of our pools tomorrow night… so:

Field Trip- Friday April 17, 2015  9pm

We had a nice field trip last night to Nugent’s Stretch. Lots of chorusing peepers and wood frogs. Nice congress of about 25 male spotted salamanders. Lots of spermatophores, no eggs yet. Various other sals, a few females mixed in. Sam Bevins found a very cuddly small newt. And fairy shrimp. Thanks to our experienced and most helpful field trippers- Colleen Anderson, Tracy Bowen and Sam Bevins.
