Saw a deep hole in a tree, so naturally I looked inside. Found a broadhead skink! Took a picture with flash to share. .

Here’s the big fella - free, but shy.  He wasn’t budging til I left him alone, so off I went, to give him some privacy.  #turtle #turtles #reptiles #georgia #wildlife #georgiawildlife #animals #wildanimals
This big fella got fenced in.  While relocating him I learned his very effective defense mechanism- he peed on me!  No matter- I liberated him nonetheless.  A River Cooter turtle?  #turtle #turtles #reptiles #georgia #wildlife #georgiawildlife #animals #wildanimals
After a morning herping, I was greeted by a 3ft Eastern Rat Snake hanging out in the ivy out in my front yard.

Good to be back among the Georgia pines for a little while

Here are a few shots of last night's Wetlands Frogs program. We saw a lot of frogs, but we didn't have high diversity like we hoped. What a fun time, though!

The annual birding boot camp in the mountains is off to a great start this morning! This class helps staff from multiple agencies learn how to identify birds by sight/sound for monitoring populations.

Got a text the other day telling me I had "first dibs" on this fella if I wanted him. So Mr Snek got relocated to my yard! He was caught in a friends henhouse eating chicken eggs, naughty. There's a huge cow pasture behind me and a couple of small ponds as well so Mr Snek has an important job keeping away the bad sneks and keeping the vermin down! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍 #snake #blackratsnake #chickenenemy #relocation #catchandrelease #georgiawildlife #gawildlife #georgia #wildlife #wild #snek #biologistproblems #biology #biologist #snakelivesmatter

Adorable little eastern garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis) found right in my back yard.  This one had a nice meal before being relocated to the woodpile.

As summer begins, green tree frogs (Hyla cinerea) chorus from wetlands across Georgia. The males are polygynous, fertilizing the eggs of numerous females over one breeding season. While their advertisement call is a lazy “meep”, they also have a rapid-fire panic call reserved for awkward moments. Eager males often pounce on each other accidentally in the dark, and this call ensures a quick release. Females smile slightly when the release call is heard. #georgiawildlife #treefrog

Our conservation staff planted mayhaws (Crataegus aestivalis) in a wet area recently cleared of Chinese privet. Also known as May hawthorn, these small, water-loving trees have clusters of white flowers in spring and an edible, red fruit in summer. They are great for pollinators and host numerous caterpillar species.

Jared, one of our experienced technicians in Kennesaw, GA, released a beautiful rat snake to its new home far away from people this morning. Nice Job Jared!! #totalanimalcontrol #nuisancewildlifecontrol #snakeremoval #relocation #georgiawildlife
Certainly sad to see another turkey season come and go. I played no games with these birds this year. See you dirty birds next year!😉

This juvenile northern watersnake (Nerodia sipedon) was sunning near the Boardwalk Trail. This nonvenomous species is common at NWC but is often misidentified as a cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus). Nonvenomous watersnakes have slender bodies and small heads that blend into the neck. Cottonmouths have thick, heavy bodies and blocky heads, giving them the appearance of a skinny neck. It should be noted that there are no records of a Cottonmouth at Newman Wetlands Center.

Happy Mother’s Day! When an orphaned Barred Owl nestling came into AWARE last month, we wondered if one of the adults in our care might be willing to act as a foster mother for the little one. When we cautiously introduced the two, she immediately took an interest in him and has readily taken him under her wing (literally!). Recently another orphaned nestling joined the small family. What lucky owlets to have a mom to help them grow up and teach them what they need to know. The trio will be in our care a little longer yet, and they eat a lot! If you’d like to make a Mother’s Day gift to support their care, please click on the link in our profile. We appreciate your support! #babyseason #lovethewildlife #wildliferehab #wildliferescue #barredowl #happymothersday #georgiawildlife #weloveatl

It’s that time of year. Who’s found their first fawn of the season? If you see one, leave it be. The doe will leave them for long stretches of time while they feed to avoid attracting predators to the fawns. But rest assured, she’ll be back. #spring #whitetail #fawn #newbeginnings #georgiaafield #georgiawildlife

Pigeon Mountain Salamander (Plethodon petraeus) is a species so unique to Georgia that it can be found only in a few areas on eastern side of the mountian for which it is named.

#georgiawildlife #salamander #pigeonmountain #amphibiansofinstagram
While searching around the twilight area of a cave yesterday we found a party of 20+ Cave, Pigeon Mtn, and slimey salamanders hanging out keeping cool and moist.

Found @awarewildlife online last night, and I'm hoping they have room for this guy. The lump on his head is subsiding, and he's on the move (but only on land). It's time to get him to professionals that can help him find his wings. 🐥 #itssweetbut #itpoopsalot #imnotalicensedrehabilitator #anditsnotapet #georgiawildlife #babycrow #fledgling #babyseason2018

Agnes’s life long ambition was always to be assigned to special ops with the elite Navy Seals.  But when she couldn’t get past the basic physical, she opted to use her mad camouflage skills in the intrepid business of Hide And Go Seek.

It’s a rainy morning and dozens of American toads (Anaxyrus americanus) have traveled from nearby woodlands to a small ephemeral pond to breed. A floating chorus of males attracts discerning females hidden along the weedy edges. Swimming directly toward a male with a most appealing tone, a gravid female sheds the unwanted grasps of lesser males, and the two lock in amplexus. A string of jelly-coated eggs is fertilized, the embrace promptly ends, and the parents flee the scene. #georgiawildlife #toads #romantic #amphibian
