Yes Sharad, I was doing an internship at a bird observatory at the time. The birds were caught, banded and released as a part of their spring migration monitoring program.

American toads and Fowler's toads do hybridize, complicating identification, but one of the distinguishing features is that American toads usually only have one wart per spot, whereas Fowler's toads have spots containing multiple spots. That being said, american toad seems far more likely (I worked on a Fowler's toad study one spring)

I have no idea what kind of toads you have in Tennessee, but this little guy is SO CUTE! So disgruntled!

Uuhhhh.... yeah I know. That's why I IDed it as such. But thanks for the effort.

Amazing photo! Looks like a Tiger Swallowtail to me.

Yes, they aren't harmed by the nets, and they readily fly off at the first opportunity.

I think they're called lantana... at least that's what they call the ones at the garden centers.

Hmm... smell IS hard to describe. It was like a mix between sweaty socks and damp soil.... it wasn't a good smell. Good thing she's pretty :)

It doesn't even describe the mood of actually being there! It was early in the morning, I was walking a trail, and there she was, not 3 meters from me! So close I could smell her.

We caught him in a mist net while doing spring migration monitoring. I guess I missed noting that in a few of these photos
