I would rather go out at night - is the time any time after midnight until the sun comes up???
I don't know if Larry Duncan has posted anything to you yet. He was out last night crawling in the bushes with a pen light in his mouth trying to take a photo of a Skink when police lights zoomed in on him! He explained about the Bioblitz, the police officer asked if there were more Master Naturalist in the area, Larry said yes and he walked away - loooong night - wait til Sunrise Wednesday Morning!!!
