#SalamanderSaturday #fieldwork hunting tiger sals & their eggs today.
...all efforts this weekend powered by an unhealthy amount of coffee ☕️☕️☕️

Wrapping up courses, getting finals ready, and prepping for summer research (mine & students') at the end of your first year as a #NewPI means I feel like this:
Had a GRRREAT tiger #salamander #fieldwork day! We found >30 egg masses across 2 ponds.

Must have been my lucky 🍀 new #Minnesota hat 😉 (bought it at a gas station this morning 😂) Image

#Minnesota #herp #fieldwork thread:

Spent yesterday afternoon with an undergrad researcher (Alex) hoping to find breeding blue-spotted #salamanders

Here's one of the ponds where we've got traps out. 🤞🤞🤞
Didn't see any sally activity, but other #amphibians were active! Image
The three ponds we are trapping for #salamanders had *deafening* choruses of boreal chorus frogs (Pseudacris maculata).

Here's male chorus #frog . You can't see it in the pic, but the skin of their throats turns yellow when they've been calling. Image
Alex's first wood #frog catch of the season!

Wood frog males were calling while supported by submerged, dead grasses in another pond we checked for #salamanders . Image
