Bona Dea frog Update
Bona Dea was mostly cloudy in the afternoon and was raining lightly. At the Spillway the Yellow bellied watersnakes were still around. The Green Herons were still trying to make up their minds if they were going to nest nearby. Some flycatchers were flying about the island in Waldon Pond. At the old swinging bridge, the Wood Ducks were still in Prairie Creek. There were large Raccoon tracks on the trail down to the waters edge. Also some deer tracks. A lot of this activity takes place at night. On Waldon Way Trail the Redwing Blackbirds were in the bushes and trees. Also the Brown Thrasher bird was singing away in a tree in the distance. On Beaver Trail a really big American Bullfrog was completely out on the bank. These photos shows the side and back views. Also Wood Ducks and their babies were swimming around in Black Water Swamp and some were calling out across the water. After I got home and looked out the bedroom window I saw this Bird-voiced Tree Frog just sitting on the window. The photos shows the inside and outside look. These are the same type of tree frogs that are at Bona Dea and really start singing in the late afternoon and night.
