This evening I went out to pick up the mail and I heard a tree frog in our front yard. I went in the house, grabbed my Edirol audio recorder and made this recording.
Only 3% of amphibian species live in North America. Â In Oregon, we have 12 native species of frogs and toads, and one introduced species. Â The Willamette Valley is currently the home for two native species of frogs, and the one introduced species. Pacific treefrogs are the most common frog species found in the Willamette Valley. Their diet consists mostly of small, terrestrial invertebrates. In January, male treefrogs move to breeding ponds and begin to vocalize. I hear these guys around our yard but seldom see them. This one was about 6 cm (2 1/2 in.) long.
