Description

I'm digging back through some old notes and photos, and posting this observation now from 30 years ago. It's still one of the most unusual finds I've ever made in golden-cheeked warbler habitat. I was with Chuck Sexton (@gcwarbler). We had gone to the Igau Ranch east of Cow Creek early on the morning of May 13, 1990 to look for golden-cheeked warblers and assess the habitat conditions. I found this common snapping turtle walking down an old road in dry cedar woodlands, pretty far from any permanent water. Carapace length about 9 inches. Chuck took 7 photos, including this one.

My neighbor called me because he had cleaned out a large mass of grass and juniper bark from the downspout of his rainwater collection tank, then he heard some animals squeaking in it. He realized it was a nest, and he thought it might be a bird nest. I went to look, and it was a squirrel nest with two baby squirrels. Their eyes were not open yet. We put the nest back where it had been, and about a minute later one of the parents went in the nest then came out with one of the babies in it’s mouth and ran off over the roof.

After I skinned it, I laid it on the grass next to the table and went in the house to take a break for lunch. About an hour later I looked outside and these two black vultures had decided to pick up on the project where I had left off. This is the first time I have seen black vultures in my yard in the 19 years I have lived in this house.

The first (shorter) recording has both Green Toads and Western Narrow-mouthed Toads calling together. You can hear the buzzy trill of the Green Toad is slightly lower pitched than the nasal whine. The trilling characteristic of the Green Toad helps distinguish it from the Narrowmouth.

The longer recording has more of both again, as well as a few short interjections by a Texas Toad. The long clip starts with the Green Toad(s) and then the Narrowmouthed Toads come in at about 4-5 seconds with their nasal whine.
