When I was stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C., I knew of a place on post that was a seepage bog filled with 3 species of Sarracenia's: Flava, Purpurea and Rubra. While there one day and looking at a particularly large Sarracenia Purpurea, I touched an empty pitcher and out hopped a Pine Barrens Tree Frog. I picked it up and it was a beautiful little thing so not wanting to hurt it, I let it go. After not seeing that bog for more then 30 years, I went back and found that due to a Red Cockaded Woodpecker being seen in the area, the ecologists at Ft. Bragg allowed the bog to overgrow to the point that all the Pitcher Plants, which by the way, are rare in North Carolina, to disappear along with the Pine Barren Tree Frogs. Amazing that they would allow two rare species, one a plant and another an animal to disappear for a bird that was seen once.
