so, a friend and i were out the other day looking at trees, frogs, salamanders, turtles and all the fun things like that. and we came across some spring peepers. and they were calling. we live in columbus, oh. so we found that to be a bit odd. we also found quit a few grey tree frogs that just morphed, one still had a nub. i guess with all the rain we have been having here the frogs never got out of the spring mode. just thought i would share that with everyone.

Awesome... and you just reminded me that I have to bug my boyfriend to get some more of my pics up... just stuff from my backyard, though.

Looks like a Bird Voiced Tree Frog or Hyla Avivoca. The X pattern is similar to P. Crucifier (sp) but it looks like it has large rear toe pads. If so, it's not a Psuedacris which aren't hylids but a seperate genus. The X on peepers is usually less prominant and well defined also.
H. Avivoca is similar to H. Versicolor only smaller.

my greys kinda look like that but no "X" on their back. i think you posted in another topic about what kind you had and it was answered too.

Hey, I hears them a few nights ago too! I was thinking how strange it is to hear them now. (in NY, not too far from you on Ohio.) Are they confused? Or are they the rarer, seldom seen and undocumented Autumn Peepers? I also heard some gray treefrigs this week.

Hey FrogsAreFunky I see no such species in american as a marbled frog. Hey, where did you get the treefrog? And the bird-voiced treefrog does look a lot like it as well as a grey treefrog.
