Very cool Auralie
I heard the frogs &/or toads singing here last week. I hadn't ever heard so many here before. I don't know if I've ever seen a tree frog here. Toads & bullfrogs & little brown green frogs in the creeks, but no tree frogs.

Last night as we were sitting quietly, reading, after dinner, our gray
cat, Jane dashed across the room and up onto the back of Chet's
chair which sits beside a double window.  She was pawing at the
window and very excited.  I could see something on the outside of
the windowpane, and at first thought it was a large moth, but when
I looked closer, found it was a frog!  This creature was on the upper
pane of a large window, just like spiderman. We watched for a long
time.  He glided back and forth across the window slowly but with
apparent ease.  Sometimes he went onto the window frame, but
soon reappeared.  He must have been catching insects that were
attracted to the light shining through the window.  We hear a lot of
frogs this time of the year, but rarely see them, and I have never
seen one on a window before.  My zoology doesn't include frogs, so
I have no idea what kind he was - some sort of tree frog I suppose.
I can recognize the bull frogs and leopard frogs in the pond, but this
one was not one of them. Body about three inches with leg-span
another two inches as he stretched across the pane.  I have read that
frogs are decliningbecause of environmental problems, but we still
seem to have plenty of them around here.
