New Herp, Etc.

I had the day off, and Troy came over. He mowed my grass. I think he likes riding the mower. After that we went to Circuit City and I got a new scanner. Now I can scan and post more of my photos.

Down by the pond I spotted a tiny frog leaping ahead of me in the grass. We cornered it, and Troy managed to catch it (not easy; this frog could really jump - like over a yard in a single hop!). I identified it as a Northern Cricket Frog, possibly of the subspecies paludicola.

Today the only bird of note was an adult Broad-winged Hawk that flew out of my front yard and perched in a tree across the road.
