I saw this frog on the foot path in "Fern Valley", alongside a stream, in the National Arboretum about an hour after rain.
I observed Mink Frogs (Rana sepentrionalis) making breeding calls on South Branch Pond in Baxter State Park in the North Woods of Maine.
The sounds I recorded that evening can be found here:
The photo was taken at the same pond two years previous on July 10, 2009.
This Common Stern (Sterna hirundo), along with others, was fishing off the bridge to the NWR.
Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus) on Assateague Beach on Chincoteague Island
The toad seemed to be warming itself up on the paved path.
Chincoteague Pony (Equus caballus)...this one is pregnant.
