Road Herping Night. Feb 29,2012

Weather conditions perfect for late winter night time road herping and vernal pool watch. The roads were full of dead phibs. Wood Frgos, Toads, Peepers, and some spotted sals were among the casualties due to cars. On the bright side I we were able to save a number and relocate them in the direction of the known pools we assumed they were headed for to breed.

The pools were quite active. Male wood frogs were extremely vocal and were not shy of our presence. Some were amplexing some trying too. Spotted salamanders could be seen lurking on the bottom and occasionally surfacing for a breath. In some pools we could hear spriong peepers too.
