Name the Frogs and Toads of New Hampshire

Updated on June 15, 2016

Let's Identify Frogs and Toads

I keep finding different kinds of frogs and toads as I walk through the woods to the pond. It's summer in New Hampshire and I hear the chug-a-lug sound of a bullfrog.

Let's learn the names of these frogs and toads. I have lots of photos, including the one I took yesterday of a frog gulping down a crawfish. I'll give you a chance to guess the name. Don't be mislead by what the person right above you guessed. They might be wrong.

I have this one on my nature shelf at the cabin. It's next to the wildflower identifier and the insect guide. I like to know the names of things I see on my walks in the New Hampshire woods.

In the evening, I hear various chirps and sing-song sounds that I'm sure are frogs. With this, I'll be able to tell which ones I'm hearing.

      I have no idea what these little frogs are - so very different from my usual sight of tree frogs

      What a fun resource for encouraging research into local frogs. I added a link to my Frog Unit Study here on Squidoo and posted a link on my Frog Themed Teaching Activities page on Facebook.
