For Ohio 2011.
1. Herp with Carl and Brian a couple solid days this spring. Check!
2. 50 records. Epic Fail! Although 30+ records was better than my last 2 years combined.
3. Get one of the last remaining animals I have yet to see that occur in Ohio. The ones I have left to see are short-headed garter snake (tried in 2006, 2010), Copperbellied watersnake (tried in 2007), Ouachita Map turtle (tried in 2006) and southern leopard frog. Epic Fail! I didn't actually try for anything of these, but maybe some day...
My Michigan data for 2011 is wrapping up pretty nicely though. It was a very good year in the field for me in Michigan and on a couple travels. I hope to be done with it soon. My Michigan and Ohio 2012 data are looking pretty miserable. The weather and work has made this season fairly difficult. I still have August and September to try and salvage some of the paddling stuff, I just need people to paddle with... Maybe I shouldn't be wasting time in the summer on field notes?
Who wants to come up and paddle Michigan?
