:Southern Maryland Field Report
:April 15, 2003

:Nothing better than to spend Tax Day running around a beaver swamp on my day off from work. Twas a bright and very sunny day; temps between 85-92 F with light intermittant breeze.
:My digital camera sucks, but ya should get the idea.

:
:This is all from a protected wetland/natural area I like to scope out...

:
:* found the broken remains of an eastern box turtle shell.

:* saw 3 Canada geese, several red-wing blackbirds, red-shoulder hawk, and a green heron.

:* photographed a male/female pair of eastern ribbon snakes hanging out under a board.

:* saw several clumps of spotted salamander eggs in various stages of development, photographed one.

:* photographed some marbled salamander tadpoles.

:* photographed a wood frog.

:* heard several gray treefrogs calling.

:* heard several spring peepers calling.

:* heard a green frog calling piteously only to track it down and find a good size northern water (or eastern garter) snake in the process of trying to eat him....too far away to get a clear photograph with my crappy digital camera and the snake could not be properly identified as it pulled under the water when it spotted me.

:* spotted several frogs hopping into the water but not able to identify from brief glimpses.

:
:Strangly enough did not see any turtles out today. Usually in this particular area I would find several eastern painteds basking and on occasion will see a common snapper or spotted turtle wandering around along the bottom of the shallower water ways. It is still a little too early for the red-spotted newts to be out breeding as of yet; normally don't see them until May.

:
:Photos taken to follow.
