Rainy morning critters

Out on a rainy morning to check small mammal traps with students. We were successful in live-trapping (and then releasing unharmed) red squirrels, deer mice, red-backed voles, and got a glimpse of one of my favorite amphibians, the wood frog. It is nice to have a reason to get up and go out even in the rain - you never know what you might see.
