Wood Frogs Awaken

On Wed. March 21,2010 we were out on the walk wiht the dogs when we heard what sounded like ducks quacking. I said i thought it was frogs. We kept walking and then we stumbled into this pair on the walking trail. I thought they were Wood Frogs but went home to look it up and sure enough we were correct. They are an early frog to wake up, they live in Vernal ponds which are areas that have water April through JUne. They are among the first to mate and the time from egg to frog is quite short. the coloring was very unique of the larger Female. When time has passed they both look very brown matching lead litter that is found on the ground.
