These guys were out in force tonight. Encountered 5 on the road, and one swimming in the pond. I still have not located confirmed breeding pools.

Funny story about this guy:

So I was asking Richard if he ever found toads in the preserve and he said yes in a pond. So a few minutes later we were looking in a small 3 inch deep ditch for red-bellied newts and I see something hop. It was a Western Toad!

I have never seen one of these guys before as a juvenile and it also secreted its milky substances which I had never saw before.
