Lots of Frog Action

Many northern red-legged frogs (Rana aurora) this year. Since first egg cluster sighting on Feb. 8 many more clusters and lots of mating and calling action. More frogs than normal sighted this year. Attests to good habitat development.

Mating collection.  Not seen before on pond.
