There are still large numbers of tiny Western toads migrating in Ryder Lake.  The baby toads are spreading out along Elk View and are still highly concentrated along Ryder Lake Road.  The toads moving during this migration have recently metamorphosed from tadpoles and some even have a remnant tail!  Check out how big they are in comparison to a dime!  In other news, a few of the toads seem to be migrating through a dry culvert on Elk View road.  Hopefully we will be able to learn from this behaviour to help divert more of the migrating toads off the road in the coming years.
