Seattle herping in February

Post by Hadar »

February 12-14th I will be in Seattle for a friend's concert and I'm interested in fitting in some herping. Any suggestions of places to go or species to keep an eye out for? Last time I was in Seattle in February there was a snow storm.

Cheers, Heather

I live ~15 minutes north of Seattle and there are a few productive ponds near my house. I have seen red-legged frog, pacific treefrog, northwestern salamander, long-toed salamander and last night I saw a rough-skinned newt. The treefrogs have already laid some eggs I have yet to see eggs of the other species yet. You are welcome to join me in looking.
