Watering my plants at night, I noticed this frog enjoying the little swimming pool made of half an avocado skin.
There are a few of them around and I am hoping to recognize them by the markings.
re-named the Baha California Tree Frog, was Northern Pacific Treefrog.
Very small frogs with dark marking around to behind the eyes. Anura Hylidae Pseudacris hypochondria?
About 7 seen as 2/3-grown metamorphs in grassy-bulrush habitat, during walk around SW quarter of the marsh. Dry now.

Aboout the size of a US quarter, it was on the North side of the log cabin by bags of trash and recycleables that might have got wet in the morning when I watered.
I am not sure at all of the ID I am giving it but it did not have obvious green markings like Pacific Treefrogs.
Sorry for the out of focus shots, I rushed to get my camera as it was hopping away.

Month/day is approximate, though year/season is accurate- this photo predates knowledge of inaturalist.
Very near where road crosses creek. Hiked upriver about 1/2 mile.
I found about 50 of these guys within two days. All I had to do was move around some leaves and 1 or 2 would pop out. I found about 10 in a log that was in the middle of the stream.
Tadpoles and newly changed frogs.
Apparently it thinks the dogs water bowl is home. It's been here around a month and retreats into the bushes.
Found in a pond with many other tadpoles. Some were partially metamorphed and others were much smaller.
There were many of these tadpoles in a small pond, ranging from tiny to this partial metamorph.
These were tadpoles in a pool of water. It was right next to a huge stream with bullfrog and western toad tadpoles in it too. Couldn't get any good pictures of the western toads. Also, I heard some croaking around the stream.
Shortly after seeing the tadpoles in stream Jeff Norland found this light colored Baja Tree Frog and I took a few vouchers.
After lunch we drove a dirt road hoping for horned lizards or a snake, saw a fresh snake track but couldn't find snake. Then made it to a stream and found these tadpoles which Jeff Lemm ID'd as Baja tree frogs.
