Tiny Western Toads were everywhere!

Peggy Berryhill and Susan Ruschmeyer attended the Gualala River event a few weeks ago. They saw thousands of tiny toads, which turned out to be Western Toads. There are four in the first photo - can you spot them?

In the second photo Susan has one of the little toads in her hand. They hatched early this year.
