North side - 2/11/2020

February 11, 2020 (Tuesday) 9:00 am – 11:00 am: 264 dead newts, 0 alive. No real fresh newts, some were fresher than others. No rain for a while now.
Weather was nice, not too cold, even at 9am.
I documented 264 dead newts. I've only included newts found on the road, between the white lines, or on them, thinking that dead newts won't stay on the road for too long, since cars, bikes, and people, and animals might move them away. They might stay longer, however, on the side of the road.
Other roadkills - 1 dead snake, 1 millipede, 1 Jerusalem cricket.
Coverage: north part - the county park parking lot till the second stop sign.
Rainfall: (MTD: 0.02 in; YTD: 15.21 in) cold, dry. Data from -
Traffic: 7 trucks, 23 cars (including a Midpen maintenance pickup), 5 bikes, 10 pedestrians.
