Tibicen lyricens at Grassy Pond

Red-backed salamander

8:30 pm - Grassy Pond Conservation Area is another new area where I have heard T. lyricen calling in the trees. Grassy Pond is a 62 acre patch of land located in Westford, Ma. It contains a centralized grassy pond at its center and is surrounded by a mixture of pine and deciduous trees and is located in a well-established neighborhood.

Heard some faint rustling sounds in the leaf litter this night. I was thinking that it may be a nymph crawling along the ground. It wasn't a nymph but I was able to find a salamander and a tree frog hopping around. Man the mosquitos are bad here!! No exuvia found. Also check out the Gypsy moth I discovered on a pine tree laying a mass of eggs.
