Our anemic pond which refuses both to hold water or completely dry out so we can line it has been showing signs of amphibian habitation. Most nights we hear a frog or two chatting with the ones on the near creek. I have even heard the distinctive "plunk!" when they jump into the water to evade chickens and cats.
Today Mr. Fuzzy's keen eyes noticed a mass of eggs at the water's edge. There is rain in our forecast so perhaps there is hope for the tadpoles survival.
The birds sure would like that. They love eating toads
