|Green frog tadpole in pool at base of outflow pipe|
Ecological notes: Green frogs, bullfrogs, and mink frogs (mink frogs are only found in the northeast kingdom) all have tadpoles that will overwinter. These little guys are green frog tadpoles. There were also some unknown (at least to me) species of fish. One that I was watching had its head pointed straight down into the muck (for more on what that muck was, you can visit one of my favorite websites).
Where: I-89 & Patchen Rd in South Burlington
|Unknown fish species enjoying the relatively warm water (probably ~50 degrees)|
