It will not be too much longer when the sounds of these male American Bullfrogs will be emanating from my pond.
Hopefully the herons who visited the pond to eat over the winter months will not have cleaned out the pond of bullfrogs.
Most likely next month I should start seeing the tadpoles swimming around close to the bank.
This big male was spotted in 2019, and was fortunate to have been able to capture him with my camera.
When I walk the path that is next to the pond the frogs who are basking on the grassy bank will leap into the pond with a very crazy scream like pitch that startles me every time.
Bullfrogs are hard to see in the grassy banks, but they can get very loud with a unique baritone call that is deep and resonant, it resembles the mooing of a cow.
