Western Toads and Butterflies

After attending the Columbia Mountain Institute presentations in Silverton, we went on a field trip with Jakob Dulisse to Summit Lake. Looked at the fencing and culvert structures and examined four male Western Toads. One of the toads examined had been “tagged” earlier with an electronically readable implant. I gathered “road-kill butterflies. Four Mourning Cloaks, one Green Comma and one Orea’s Comma. Caught, identified and released one beautiful male Spring Azure.
