Did a bit of field herping today

I went out for a few hours with my camera at a local pond!


My apt complex has a nest of Goldfinches


Black Crowned Night Heron


Great Blue Heron







SO MANY TADPOLES!
I had worn rubber boots so I could go in the water to sneak up on frogs, but there were so many tadpoles I didn't want to step on them...









I heard lots of frogs.. but they were hard to spot and I was losing daylight fast.. but I snapped a few


This guy was HUGE... I was very zoomed in.. I wish I could have gotten closer... He was so loud I thought someone was playing a horn!









This poor guy had a tick :(

Great job. These pictures are very nice. Be careful of the ticks yourself. They are everywhere at the first hint of nice weather.

Great pics I'm very familiar with Malden (lived there for a bit). Which pond did you take these at? I've never seen a heron that close to the city.

Pine banks park! According to a random dude who was there, that heron has lived there for 5 years.

I've only lived here for one. I live right across the street from it :)

I know it well. We used to slide down the hills there when they were covered in pine needles using cardboard boxes.
