Popes Head Creek Clifton 8 Acre Park

 

Checked on the vernal pools in the 8 acre park this afternnon. Alive and well. Observed wood frogs, numerous tad poles and egg masses. Toads were vocal preparing to add their future generations to the pool.  Some nice bloodroot blooms could be found at the western end of the trail too.

Toad with partially air filled vocal sac ready to call in the females. I wish I could get closer or had a stronger lens!
