April 30th Salamandering; Pine BarrensI traveled to a location in the Pine Barrens that I knew held Red Salamanders. I ended up finding them, but it took me a long time and flipping a lot of logs. In the end, I saw two Red Salamanders and a few Four-toed Salamanders (plus the usual Redbacks). A few birds and a Fence Lizard completed the day.
