The Skin

Husbandman and I like to see birds in the wild, but we don't like to wake up early on our precious weekends. We tenaciously venture out around noon, even though birds are usually long gone.  Birds hang out during sunrise and then they make themselves scarce.  Birds don't have time to fool around. That being said, we did see a few birds down Goose Pond way on Sunday afternoon.  We saw some terns flying around and some cattle egret in a field.  We also saw this toad.  How do I know it's a toad, you ask?  Toads have rough skin.  Frogs have smooth skin. This toad was comfortable hanging out in the open mid afternoon.  I'm thinking of starting a toad watching club.

Great picture. I have my door open this morning listening to the birds outside as I get ready to tackle the last week of school.

We used to make toad houses when I was young. I could be helpful with your club.
