|Snowdrops happy to see the sun on Thursday|
|Hey, where's the water??|
The pair below beginning the defense of their breeding ground. Notice the low neck position of the one on lower left....not a friendly sign.
|Get off my pond!|
And on Thursday the little guy below was seen hanging out on the window screen on the south side of the nature center.
|Little Brown Bat |
And even though it is raining now at 8:50 PM and the temperature is 47 degrees, no sighting of amphibians yet. The breeding ponds are still locked with a thick layer of ice. But I would expect that sometime during the next two weeks or so, the wood frogs, spring peepers and spotted salamanders will make their appearance. And the spring wildflowers will not be far behind.
