June 2015 Species Counts

Post by sstaedtler » June 2nd, 2015, 7:57 am

Please use this thread to record all species observed or heard in the field during the month of June 2015.

This is to be used as a general list and no photos should be included here. Save the photos for your topics, and more importantly for your database entries.

*REMEMBER: It is our duty as members of N.A.F.H.A. to record all of our finds at http://www.naherp.com .

Be as specific as you feel you need to be in these lists, but please do not be more detailed with specific locales than a county.

When entering your records in the database, the quantity should match the number depicted in the photos.
Thanks

Nice find with the Hog ... you should contact Mass Wildlife/Tom French and let him know the specifics; several years ago they were asking for any observations of Hognose in MA
