You have way too much time on your hands... how do you find the time to go do all that stuff?  While you're looking for the spotted salamander, I'll be checking the treetops outside my house, looking for the spotted owl.  Haven't seen too many owls but I see bald eagles almost every day.  I never get tired of watching those great birds soaring on the wind.  A powerful bird that makes flying look so completely effortless.  Their nests look something like a giant treehouse in size.  We have several nesting pairs within a couple of miles of our house.  Later this month, our area hosts a weekend of bird watching.
