Monterey, MA April 23, 2013

This morning I woke up and drove 30 minutes to our survey site and met with Patrick Zephyr who helped out for the day. We did a ton of hiking and visited 10 targeted vernal pool sites that were suspected Jefferson salamander breeding sites. Alas, all 10 pools were absent of Jefferson salamander eggs. These pools were however abundant in wood frog and spotted salamander eggs. We did a lot of hiking up and down some pretty tough terrain and saw some amazing scenery. Here are the highlights in photos.
