Mom was sitting working on the computer this morning when we first heard it - a sound like a duck in distress - quacking. She went outside thinking maybe a duck had landed in our yard - it is soooo windy today and she thought one might of got hurt. We looked every where and couldn't find anything. She had just gone back inside and sat down when we heard it again - so off we went outside and this time - super sleuth ME found it. There tucked away in one of the potted plants was a Tree Frog. We had them here last year too but much later in the season and YES - the 'quacking' noise they make is the males calling for a mate.
As I mentioned it is also VERY windy today and in the high 80's - in fact we have just had the weather radio go off alerting us to a tornado watch. Mom hates these high wind and tornado warning days - mainly because they blew our fence down twice the year before last and it took weeks and lots of green papers to get fixed. Tomorrow a cold front is coming in dropping the temps back down to 55 which is what is causing all the instability at the moment.
I love frogs! I'm always delighted when I find one among our plants or on the house. Just checked the radar and looks like we're in for thunderstorms. Poor Casper. They worry him greatly.ReplyDelete
Creepy hopping frogs! While Finn's a fan, I get so freaked out by them! I would have screamed and run away! Hope your weather gets calmer!!ReplyDelete
Our frogs and toads don't sound like that at all. WOW.ReplyDelete
Stay safe from the dangerous weather.
Do Not lick the frog. Oh I have had bad experiences with that. Take it from me it is something you do not want to do. I hope ya all don't blow away and the fence stays up.ReplyDelete
Stay safe and warm. Hope the frogs are not blown about too much. Have a terrific Thursday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Shame on that tree frog for disturbing your quiet:)ReplyDelete
You have what we had yesterday for weather. We were under a tornado watch all day until about 10 at night. But it never got warm enough. We did get lots of rain and some noisy thunder and lightning overnight. Phantom was not a happy camper yesterday but today is another day. We hope the wind blows all the bad stuff far away from you.
Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
