The wood frog was one of four frogs I saw this morning. In addition, I saw a Northern Leopard Frog and two American Toads, all on a half mile stretch of the bike path. It seemed there was much more frog activity than normal.

The wood frog has garnered attention by biologists over the last century because of its freeze tolerance, relatively great degree of terrestrialism (for a Ranid), interesting habitat associations (peat bogs, vernal pools, uplands), and relatively long-range movements.
