Re: frogs

I suppose every amphibian is different.  Here I usually start hearing  the 
frogs in spring when they are really active, then it tapers off a bit, then  
starts up again.....on and off through fall.  
Usually after a rain they are active.....especially the toads.  I  think it 
is instinct, since they can lay eggs in shallow temporary waters,  to mate 
after a rain.  Their tadpoles become toads after a couple  weeks only.  Frogs on 
the other hand remain tadpoles for much longer.   The Bullfrog is the longest, 
I think..... remains a tadpole for up to two  years.

Hmmm....  Is there a mating season?  I must have females in  the pond.
Perhaps then I will hear some frog sounds other than  "splash."
