Start Looking For Tadpoles!

Frog Filled Rains! Tadpoles and Street Puddles! Join in and post your fabulous tadpole and frog photos here!

I would like to bring your attention to the blog series I posted last summer that textually and photographically documented the development of tree frog tadpoles, _The Street Puddle Tadpole Saga._

How many of you noticed last night after the rains quieted? There was croaking, chirruping, barking, and whistling. The frogs have awakened and have begun their rain-driven spawning. Watch the curb puddles as you walk along. Look down into the drain off ducts. Check your bromeliad centers and Take pictures! Upload them to the Patch, to this posting!

How wonderful to have a collaborative, photographical documentation of not only our frog populations but their growth stages as well.

When you upload your image, please remember to label it with date, time, and location of sighting. Species would also be great but not necessary. If you do not know the species, someone who sees the photo and the time, dates, and location may be able to identify.

Another wonderful way to help in a worldwide species watch is Project Noah.

Through the websight via computer or smart-phone app you can upload images to the Project Noah data base. Everyone across the world participates, learns and shares their gorgeous images and species knowledge. The Project can contribute to the tracking of species, migration patterns, adaptations, population decreases and/or growths, habitat issues, behaviors, such as mating, hunting, etc.... It is also a great sight to get your kids hooked on.

I look forward to seeing all your fabulous tadpole and frog photos!
