Vermilion Co., Illinois. June 16, 1997
Once I learned to love getting out in the field in late winter and early spring, Wood Frog sightings moved from an occasional encounter in some damp forest, to a seasonal show with a cast of hundreds. Often they are the first amphibian of the year for me. The frog pictured here is a 2006 specimen from Kentucky.
HerpMapper records for this species are here.
