Discovered this snake in my wood pile while moving the pile. I stopped moving the pile and left it alone until fall. Haven't seen this snake since then, but there was a skin in the pile in the fall.

Description from Wikipedia

Opheodrys is a genus of small to medium-sized colubrid snakes commonly referred to as green snakes. In North America the genus consists of two distinct species. As their common names imply, the Rough Green Snake has keeled dorsal scales, whereas the Smooth Green Snake has smooth dorsal scales.
