The official unofficial blog of the Louisiana Amphibian Monitoring Program. This is a place where we can talk about the program and share our observations.

Thanks for the invite, and a question

Hey, thanks to Ross for setting up this blog. What an exciting event, this is my first blog entry!

Anyway, something I forgot to ask at the LAMP annual meeting and feast - what is the current distribution of Rio Grande Chirping Frog in LA - restricted to Baton Rouge?

Get ready for LAMP!

This is from Steve Shively:

Just an early (or maybe just in time) reminder that the sampling window for run #1 for the southern region (most LAMPsters) begins January 1.

The Season Is Upon Us

It's official! I heard code 2 spring peepers when I got home from work this evening.

Come on in, the water's fine

By now some of you have seen the invitation that I sent through email. I started this blog so those of us in LAMP can share our observations or thoughts regarding LAMP throughout the year. In order to post something to the blog, you will have to set up an account with Blogger. If you don't mind, I ask that you put as much information in your profile(e.g., picture, hobbies, etc.) as your comfortable with, so the members of LAMP can become more acquainted with you. If you have any questions, send me an email and I will do my best to help.

Testing the waters

Hey! This is old Steve trying out the blog. Half an inch of rain at my house last night on the outskirts of Woodworth. Heard a few peepers peep.
At left is an H. chrysoscelis I encountered on one of my runs. No significance. Just trying out adding images to the post.

Partner Jim

Well, I think it will work. Very little rain so far and no winter frogs yet at at Butte La Rose. Will keep up with this blog and see what happens elsewhere. Thanks Ross.

Good Meeting

We had a nice meeting last Saturday at Jim's, although there were fewer people than last year. Kirk of course came through with the good cooking; he made some chicken and sausage gumbo and shrimp dip that were good eats. I observed thirteen species of birds and helped run most of Jim's trotline. Overall, it was a good day.

I hope for people to share their experiences, suggestions, data, or thoughts about the program via this blog. If there is anything that you would like to see added to the blog, let me know and I will look into it.
