Baby Mountain Chicken!!
Well I made it my quest for 2016 to catch some of the elusive baby frogs from one of our main survey sites. And fortunately I managed to spot and catch one of the 2 this week. Very positive to find a frog of this age (6 months old) in another site which was hit by tropical storm erika. We now have confirmation of successful breeding in two sites across the island. We were also fortunate enough to be joined by University of Delaware students for the last two weeks, several of whom came on a number of night surveys and night feeding at the facility. It was a pleasure to have guests on the project and to thank them for their interest in the project we named one of the frogs YoUDee after the University of Delaware mascot, which happens to be a Chicken. Good week for the Mountain Chicken Project!
