Amphibians on the Move

It was still too cold and snowy for amphibians in central Vermont, but the migration has officially begun in the Champlain Valley. Here are a few pictures from yesterday evening's big movement:

We crossed about two dozen Spotted Salamanders.

The Jefferson/Blue-spotted Salamanders were most abundant, with around 90 crossed.

We crossed about 8 of these rare Four-toed Salamanders.

We only crossed around a half dozen Spring Peepers in the evening.
