Frogs at the Ponds

Just wanted to do a quick posting on all of the different frogs that are inhabiting my ponds and property! Normally, bullfrogs, wood frogs, tree frogs, leopard frogs and lots of toads are seen around my landscape in the Spring through Fall seasons. The most animated frogs in my ponds seem to be the bullfrogs. They each have funny little personalities and appear to want to interact with me at times. Cute!

Here’s a cute tree frog that likes to pop up out of nowhere. You never know where you’ll find them.

Another bullfrog at one of my ponds. The bullfrogs are by far the most vocal of all the frogs during the day. The other frogs tend to sing in chorus at night.

Here’s an example of an evening frog chorus. It’s usually pretty pitch black outside when the frogs are at their peak singing strength! You’ll just see black in the video but will hear the different types of frog sounds.

And here’s a little tree frog chirping through the night. Sometimes the tree frogs are far more annoying than the rest of the chorus. Must be my “old ears” that can’t take the high pitch.

Some pretty large bullfrog tadpoles born last October overwintered this year in one of my larger ponds. This little frog with a tail might be one of them.
