Ho hum - BORING !!!!! The weather man is forecasting rain EVERY day this week but we are still managing to sneak out between showers for little walks. The only ones who seem to be enjoying all this wet are the tree frogs who have been "quacking" up a storm. This is the first time we have seen them all summer and we thought maybe the crazy weather had upset them. Now even though the days have been warm and humid the nights have been getting quite chilly and this morning as Mom was doing some weeding she heard that familiar quacking (did you know tree frogs quack?) and went looking and there they were - two little tree frogs hugging the light to keep warm. How they managed to get up to the light is anyone's guess - it helps to have sticky little feet though.

And guess what - now you can hear them. Did you know tree frogs are called "herps" here is a page
that has their strange sound on it - look for the word "description" and just under it you will see a little speaker symbol - just double click on it and you can hear them quacking!
The bigger of the two frogs is actually a yellowish color with a white stripe and the smaller one is a darker green with a white stripe. We couldn't get really good photos of them as it was hard to get the camera in behind the lamp where they were hiding. They both have the white strips so we are thinking they are same species just different color variations. Mom has been happy all day knowing they are around - she LOVES tree frogs - weird huh!

i totally love your frogs even when they "forequack" storms. I heard them, it sounds a little like a barking goose lol.ReplyDelete

HEY we heard a funny FROG Joke on TV last night...
What happens when a Frog parks in a NO Parking Zone???
He gets TOAD. BaaaaWaaaah.
Hmmmm...maybe I could sniff one just to see.ReplyDelete
We had a lot of rain last week and more coming tomorrow. Last week Mom had to go out in the dark to see what Lightning was stalking. It was a GIGANTIC tree frog, but it was too dark for the flashy beast to get a shot of it. Mom is hoping Lightning didn't lick it - he was just standing there and barking and barking at it. Mom had to get a plastic bag and pick it up - ewwwww - and move it outside the fence. He was really ugly.ReplyDelete
Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning
OMP - how awesome my friend. I love these frogs. We have some down below our backyard in the 'swamp'. You can hear them really loud at night. And sometimes, we get them on our storm door. We haven't seen any yet this year. Why do you ask I know this? Because I haven't heard mommy screaming from them jumping out of nowhere at her - snorts. XOXO - BaconReplyDelete
Toad-ly (totally) Pawsome post.ReplyDelete
Scientists say if there are frogs then the earth is healthy. Guess that goes for cold frogs....ReplyDelete
We can't imagine a yellow frog. Ours are like the Mr Green.
How Cool! We have never seen a frog, let alone a frog that quacks!ReplyDelete

Seriously, HOW did those little bitty frogs get up there?! I bet they are super cute to see.ReplyDelete
Our tree frogs are so loud! I like to watch frogs but only at a few feet away! ☺ReplyDelete

Wally & Sammy
Oh, what could we do if we had sticky feets?!?! The possibilities are endless!!! The tree rats would be defeated!ReplyDelete
Is it not amazing that they could tell that they could get heat from your outside light. They are smart little guys.ReplyDelete
Yikes! Mom doesn't like frogs at all! She would be very unhappy if we had lots of frogs here!ReplyDelete
