We had a great program last night sponsored by the Oxford (CT) Land Trust. Atka enjoyed himself exploring the bleachers of the gymnasium and even helped himself to water from a water fountain. After Atka left the building, Maggie spied a spotted salamander crawling across the dusty gym floor. Very strange! She cleaned him off and successfully released him into a more suitable habitat.
Upon returning home with Atka we were greeted by some of the best howling I've heard in a while. The Mexican Gray wolves started it off with soft harmony; after a minute, the red wolves sent their unique higher-pitched ululating wails soaring into the night. All in all, it was quite a good evening!
