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.
