Another frog species spotted in our garden....

Last night, we encountered this gorgeous creature on the other side of our sun-room window. It's Litoria phyllochroa, Leaf Green Tree Frog, family Hylidae. Not an uncommon species in this part of Sydney.

That brings to five the number of frog species we've identified in our garden, listed in our garden census. The wet weather we've been having is such a joy!

Hi Margaret
Lovely to have one of those guys visit your window.

Margaret said...

Sure is, Denis. I always feel that if you've got frogs in your garden, it must be a healthy ecosystem.
