very funny now to find froggies on the
windows at night getting bugs.
i can now retire the list of strange
window noise suspects over the years and
put most of them down as tree froggies.
i'm glad to see them about. a week ago
there was one on the patio door that was
so loud that i thought it was in the house.
got up to find it and scoot it outside, but
it wasn't to be found. got quiet.
a few days later i hear a noise on the
window and look up to see a silouette of
a froggie as it was going after bugs. didn't
get a picture.
sometimes i've thought it was bats getting
moths or bugs, other times i thought it was
raccoons playing around, but i've never been
able to catch the noise maker in the act before.
after finding the tree froggie on the roof
last year the clue plane finally buzzed me
enough and i'm convinced. i don't know where
they hide out during the day. Ma said she had
one in the lid of the propane tank, but i didn't
get a chance to see it. no picture.
tonight there was one on the window above
the kitchen sink. couldn't get a picture of
that one either. i tried. they have good night
vision. it went away once i approached with
i'm happy with what i'm doing here to make
more spaces for frogs, but as of yet i haven't
been able to get the population of toads to
increase. no lack of bugs, but a definite lack
of quiet water for egg laying, hatching and
tadpoles. plus we do have plenty of snakes
about. wish the snakes would eat the
chipmunks, but when you are trying to build a
web of life you sometimes don't get to say
exactly what eats what.
