Spring Night at Three Falls Woods in Onondaga County, NY

May 10, 2023
60-70 degrees Fahrenheit
7:20-9:40 PM
There was a very large number of Eastern Red-Backed Salamanders, American Giant Millipedes, and Leopard Slugs, along with what appeared to be a sizeable population of Northern Spring Salamanders, Northern Two-Lined Salamanders, and Allegheny Mountain Dusky Salamanders. Also encountered was a Northern Slimy Salamander, a Red-Spotted Newt, and several species of spider. Weirdly, I did not see any crayfish whatsoever.
