Pacific Newt Roadkill: 14 found dead today; no live ones seen

April 3, 2019 (Wednesday) 9:45 am – 11:45 am

I found 14 fresh newt carcasses today. The migration season is definitely waning. I’m fairly certain most of the dead were Taricha granulosa.

Other roadkill: 2 toads and a Western Fence Lizard

Coverage: (~51%) Vulcan quarry to Soda Springs Rd. plus spot-checked a few other locations.

Rainfall: (MTD: 0.18 in; YTD: 24.43 in) It was drizzling this morning.

Traffic: Traffic was light. Approximately 10 cars and pickups.
