Frog Invasion!

Every Spring, we have a "seasonal" frog pond in one of the pastures. It's straight out the back door of my house, about 75 feet away. It starts with a couple of tentative croaks about mid-February, and increases every night until there are so many frogs croaking so loud that I can't even hear the TV! 
The YouTube video is an example of the sound these particular froggies make (not my video, but the same type of frogs..)  Since it has rained so much lately, the drain between pastures has clogged, and now I have 2 huge ponds... the second one QUICKLY filled up with frogs, making it twice as ...musical. I love the little green frogs, (not because of the noise..) but because they're kinda cute, and they attract 2 pairs of ducks that seem to like tadpoles, a raccoon family who seems to favor frogs as well, and even a Blue Heron that pops in once in a while and spears himself a snack. 

I found lots of Frogs at, too! Like this cute trio from LyndaLeesLoft!
