Bald Eagle

There’s roughly 200 yards between where this eagle was photographed and the 220 acre clear-cut site

You have to listen to the sounds of frogs in March (mating season). These were recorded on property just below the proposed logging site.

Every March, a massive colony of frogs appear like clockwork. They come out for some mating ritual, then the sound goes away by April. Go outside and listen tonight.

  1. Hello. As you may know entire area surrounding the southeast region of the proposed clearcut becomes very loud each March (like clockwork), with the arrival of a certain species of frog. Millions of them. It’s just getting started. Tonight I walked outside and caught one, took pictures of the frog, made a recording of the sound and will put that on youtube. Will you please send me an email, so I can send you pictures of this frog? Thank you.

    • Thank you for getting involved. I will send you a private message. If you could reply to that email and attach the picture, we would love to include the picture under the “wildlife” tab on SaveSquak.com

    • Your pond most likely has several species of amphibians in it. The sounds heard on your video are the Pacific Tree Frog, which ‘choruses’ loudly during mating at this time of year. The frog in your picture looks to be a Northern Red-Legged Frog. Thanks so much for your contributions to our website!

  2. Andy,
