we think either a bird dropped it or it
climbed up via a tree that slightly overhangs.
still rather amused/amazed as it gets very
hot up there and we've had 90F weather
already. as it was my feet and hands were a
bit cooked yesterday and it was only in the
70s and partly cloudy...
i'm still not even sure it is a toad or a
frog/treefrog, i didn't want to disturb it to
get a much closer look. still leaning towards
thanks Pat, indeed it is a gray tree frog.
strange place to take up living, but there
were plenty of horse flies up there for it
to snack on. if it climbed the house it
went over a horizontal surface of the eves
for 2ft to get to the roof. more likely it
came up the tree that overhangs slightly.
now i'll have to come up with another name
Gray tree frog, I think. You hear them a lot more than you see them,
most of the time.
They do a very nice job of looking like a spot of lichen. Of course,
when a spot of lichen appears on a black steel stair railing (or a plain
gray roof) all of a sudden, it's not such great camouflage. Anywhere
tree-ish it works very well. And even on the stair railing, the first
thought that came to mind was not "frog."
Cats, coffee, chocolate...vices to live by
Please don't feed the trolls. Killfile and ignore them so they will go away.

Going with tree frog, they have these neat suctioncup feet and climb on our sliding glass doors during rain. Drives the dogs nutz!!
And one night I saw what I thought was a moth on our textured ceilings in the bedroom. Too comfy to get up, I let it be. Shortly after I turned the light out I felt something bounce off my arm, felt really weird. Turned the light on, and looked, and it was one of those frogs like your picture. I got up and took him outside. Scared the Beejesus out of me. I couldn't believe he could suction cup on the ceiling all the way across the room.
