Tulip Frog

A small visitor to our garden… or possibly resident. We hear them calling fairly regularly. This is the first time I’ve gotten a good look at one, though. I’m not sure about the species. Ascaphus montanus is my best guess: it seems within the scope of variability for the species, but I’m not entirely convinced and our garden would represent a notable, though certainly not inconceivable, expansion of the range maps I’ve found. Insights are welcome. Update: It’s a Pacific treefrog brown morph, Pseudacris regilla – thanks, Bluetusk Images (whom everyone should follow)!

In any case, happy springtime, and happy Easter to those celebrating!
