Spring Field Trips!

3 posts in this topic

Recording the first time I see various creatures each spring is a habit that stretches back to my childhood, and to this day I keep and even re-read my old notebooks. Over the last few years, the unbridled enthusiasm of a new field partner (not to mention his wonderfully keen eyesight!), has kept me outdoors even more than in the past (see photos). Spring 2015 has been slow to arrive and seemingly loathe to take hold here in southern NY and northern NJ. But we have persisted in looking for our favorite spring sights, and over the past several weeks have finally been rewarded with views of old favorites and some new observations as well.

Great article, and yes NY has taken forever for spring and it's still behind but getting there! I remember camping upstate NY and finding spotted salamander larva in a drying vernal pool and saving them by bringing them home. Got a few adults but sadly they only lived a few years I was young and didn't know proper husbandry yet.
