75 degress and finding salamanders in december
I had a phone call today from a fellow volunteer monitor. Out on a walk at a local nature center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, she took the occasion to check for salamanders and first try, found a Slimy Salamander. I am not sure if this was an attempt to rub it in my face that while they are enjoying 75 degrees in Tennessee, temperatures are roughly 60 degrees colder here in Wisconsin/Minnesota. Any opportunity for finding a salamander is many months away for me.
