I researched frog calls, and it seems that we have a Cope's gray treefrog! The call matches that more than the regular ol' gray treefrog. Since I have been focusing on birds for the past few years, my knowledge of amphibians and other critters is a little sparse. But that's one of the great things about blogging (other than meeting cool people)...it forces me to learn about something so I can do a post about it.
I heard him calling, so I took the laptop outside and sat on the porch. I played the recording of his species, and he answered!
Tomorrow is Lorelei's last day of school, and in direct result, my last day of "Tuesday-Thursday" freedom. So I will make this kids-free, program-free day count. Maybe East Fork Lake, (I actually typed "Eat Fork Lek") or the CNC.
I had a request from our dear Pam to get video of Lorelei saying "bewd".
It's pretty cute.
I haven't seen him, but I hope to get at least a glimpse, and if I'm lucky, a picture. They are so cute. But getting a look at him will be interesting...gray tree frogs can be gray, green, or almost black. How am I supposed to see a green or gray frog in green/yellow foliage????
