This week NJ Audubon Stewardship Project Director & Fight’n Femelschlager John Parke photographed a Northern Gray Treefrog calling from his deck! According to the NJDFW, “In New Jersey, two species of gray treefrogs occur — the northern (Hyla versicolor) and the southern (H. chrysoscelis). Nearly identical in appearance, these treefrogs can be differentiated only by vocal or chromosomal analysis. The Northern Gray Treefrog has a slow trill while that of the Southern Gray Treefrog is quicker, shorter, and higher-pitched. Both Gray Treefrogs breed from May through July. High humidity and temperatures above 63° F initiate breeding activity. ” When gardening for wildlife, consider adding or protecting water features in your yard to provide habitat for amphibians, as well as birds and other animals.
