American Toad

Singing in our backyard fish pond

 

American Toads need to breed in fresh water. This one was probably a male searching for a mate. He stayed in our pond for a couple days, then at the neighbours for a few, and then moved on when no females showed up. There is a large pond about a kilometer away where he may have found a mate.

 

Thanks so much for watching.
