Today, while conducting chorus frog surveys in the Ennismore-Buckhorn-Nogies Creek area, I encountered Northern Waterthrushes at more than a dozen sites, a single singing Palm Warbler and a House Wren. Lots of herps: Midland Chorus Frogs (calling at 37 locations, some of which had been ice- and snow-bound last weekend), lots of Spring Peepers and Northern Leopard Frogs, Wood Frogs still calling at one site and Gray Treefrogs (calling), Later in the afternoon, along the rail trail north of Trent University, Lori and I saw and heard both a Yellow Warbler and a Black-and-White Warbler.
