Most if not all of these shells were empty. May have been killed of by a recent killing frost.
In this picture you can see the American Toad I rehabed's lawn mower injury.
I found this American Toad about two weeks ago unfortunately I found him by accidently cutting off the tip of its back right leg. I caught it and put it in an old terrarium I have and bought it some crickets and monitored its appetite. A few days ago I put him in the bath tub and found it could still swim fairly well so I decided it was time to release it. I know your supposed to release animals where you found them but my coop just hired a lawn maintence company and I didnt trust them to watch for toads. I decided to release him close by in a rain run off pond. It appeared happy to be back in the wild where it belonged.
I saw this Great Blue Heron preening its feathers near a saw river by Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario
I observed several Red-winged Blackbirds flying around the park
I watched three male American Robins on the ground in close proximity to each other chasing each other
