I am somewhat trying to monitor frogs in a park along the Grand River in Michigan after after the highest flood crest recorded on record, which was exactly two weeks ago today (the crest: 22 April 2013; today: 6 May 2013). Much of the part just became one giant moving pond/lake/river. Since first exploring the flood receded, just yesterday and today, I have seen and or heard metamorphs and/or adults of Blanchard's Cricket Frogs, Gray Treefrogs, Northern Leopard Frogs, and I think one Northern Spring Peeper.

Found, to my surprise after such a flood, a lot of tadpoles. I am not sure what I am seeing.

Here are two photos of the same two tads. I don't know what I am seeing.

Previous observations... looks like toad tads... American and Fowler's in you area. Both have that roundness to them rather than the elongated shape of a frog tad.
