Birds & Herps

First week down at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station.  My Conservation Biology class and I have been seeing a lot of wildlife, especially birds and herps or herptiles (i.e., reptiles and amphibians).  We have seen gray and green tree frogs, eastern narrow-mouthed and Fowler’s toads, an eastern hog-nosed snake, Forester’s and royal terns, black skimmers and red-headed woodpeckers.  Check out the great pictures taken by Kevin Faccenda of some of these animals.  Looking forward to next week.
