Description

The frogs are out in great numbers night and day at the small pond and other wet areas of the park and many egg masses have already been laid. The attached photo is of 3 tenacious males that refuse to release the female which I assume had become a casualty of love. I picked up the writhing, croaking cluster and was surprised that she was still "kicking". She even laid a few eggs in my hand.

The most interesting bird of the day. The Cornell Birding website (allaboutbirds.org) does not show CT in any part of this species' range map, and I have never seen one before. At first I thought it was a cormorant because it was exhibiting the same diving behavior.
