Wood Frog

A small, brown frog with dark eye mask. To a certain extent freeze-tolerant and can breed in vernal pools. Usually the first of the local frog species to appear in spring.

How to Identify?

The dark eye mask is a distinctive characteristic of this species.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

My only observation of this species has been in Park Pointe aux Prairies early spring in a pool which still was partially frozen.

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
