Sep 12, 2013: Blanchard's Cricket Frog

This Blanchard's Cricket Frog, a subspecies of the Northern Cricket Frog, was found amongst the rip-rap adjacent to the spillway (SE corner of the south lake).  They are small (0.6-1.5 inches), with distinct warts on the back, white belly, and a faint reddish line down the middle of the back (faintly visible on this specimen).  They are quite vocal in Spring and sound like marbles being tapped together. 9/10/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
