Summer is at its peak and since we've been getting regular rainstorms, there is an abundance frogs and toads at our pond, in the woods, and near our houses. A number of us have been enjoying trying to identify the different frogs by their calls. A book with CD by Lang Elliott has been incredibly useful in this enjoyable quest. [20 July 2005]

  • Bullfrog, by the pond
