Frogs (and other amphibians)
Here are some links to frogs I thought you'd find interesting.
1. Bullfrog This distinguishes the green and bullfrogs, and males from females and has recordings of their songs
2. Vernal pool Interesting description of the importance of Vernal Pools (temporary spring ponds)
3. The famous frogs
4. Pickerel frog, often seen on lawns (and in meadows) resembles leopard frog
5. Spotted salamander. "Click for call"
That wet place in the woods? leave it alone! dont fill it in, dont chop down the trees! It's home to frogs, salamanders, freshwater shrimp andmore... and all those things are food for other items, including the stuff you like to watch ...or hunt.
