Like all pelicans, he belongs high above the waves, eyeing plentiful schools of fish, in search of a comely mate and the perfect spot for a nest. A few years back, I had the pleasure of attending the annual meeting of the Oregon Chapter of The Wildlife Society.

Pretty neat work, and very helpful to the well being of amphibians in general, which are facing serious problems from climate change (which, in spite of all the political balderdash, is for real) excessive radiation, loss of habitat, and predation from non native fish. (That last one is also a real threat to a lot more than salamanders. )We have only one species of native salamander roaming around Central Oregon that we have to worry about, the long toed salamander, Ambystoma macrodactylum krausei. In addition, however, we do have rough skinned newts, a close relative of salamanders that can be found in most of the high country lakes.
