As we walked in,
I thought I heard Brant (which obviously it was not) cuckling. When I
checked the pond with my binoculars, I could see & hear several dozen frogs
(which I recorded and looked up), which turned out to be Wood frogs. They

above the water surface.
Heard blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, unknown woodpecker heard hammering,
mallards down the trail at the larger pond. Did not see any activity at the
