There's a couple green frogs that seem to not care whatsoever, as they are on the banks hiding in the leaves and jump in as I approach, despite being mid December. From reading online, just assumed they'd burrow into the mud or stay at the bottom all winter. Even the overflow trench in the backyard seems to have a frog in it. Judging by sizes, looks like ones from the first eggs last spring. August had one batch of tadpoles that are overwintering (noticed they grow rapidly in spring and were everywhere in the pond; August tadpoles however were incredibly shy and remained hidden to the point I thought they were all eaten, then out of the blue a giant-headed green frog tadpole in the fall could be spotted rarely).

Yeah, same here. We've been having some pretty mild weather so far this winter & just a few minutes ago we saw a nice little bullfrog peeking out from a cave in the rocks. :love:

Yesterday, I am pretty sure I heard a frog repeatedly calling. There is a small creek that runs through the back of some neighbors' properties and it sounded like it was coming from back there.

It's around 65 degrees here in Western NY today. Will change quickly - snow forecasted for Saturday. Haven't seen any frogs but there's a bunch of tadpoles in the bottom of my pond. ribbit :meh:
