Trustom Pond, Rhode Island

Not sure if it’s a bumper year for small mammals in Rhode Island but I just spent a very happy 3.5 hours at Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge this afternoon.  Tons of Southern Bog Lemmings, 2 Meadow Jumping Mice, a Southern Red-backed Vole, a shrew (probably a Smoky Shrew) and a New England Cottontail. The first 3 were lifers for me.

    Well, it sure doesn’t sound like a normal year anywhere east of Kansas…
