My Elusive Tree Frog

by Jean Mader
(Springfield , Ohio)

I live in a development which is blessed with green Tree Frogs. At least I believe they are green. I vaguely remember seeing one of these darling creatures when I first moved into the neighborhood almost twenty years ago, and I believe it was green.


Since that time, I have only been able to hear the Tree Frogs. I sneak around when I hear their little voices, but as soon as I get close, they stop chirping. It is very frustrating not to find their hiding places.

This afternoon, I was doing some gardening. I was very close to a Hydrangea shrub, and a Tree Frog began to chirp. I stood up and looked everywhere around the bush and then I scoured the downspout and eaves with my eyes, but I didn't see a thing. I crept between the bush and a red Barberry, getting scratched in several places, and then slapped by a Spirea branch. I stood stock still. That creature never made a sound.

I am not familiar with Tree Frogs. They were not a part of my life in the city. I am happy about having them about, but I have enough scratches just from getting my flowerbeds weeded and planted. I fear if I continue to skulk around like a Ninja turtle, I will appear a Klutz or worse.

Tonight, I decided to get on the internet and do some research so that maybe I can find the secret of where these little creatures hide. That is how I found this site.


Hopefully, very soon, I will learn more about Tree Frogs, and then I will be armed with enough knowledge to help me discover where to look when I hear their sweet song.
