Canyon Tree Frog

Yesterday, I led fellow wanna-be botanists Judi and Joyce and our birder friend Phil on a hike to Camp Creek Falls. What a day! Wildflowers were few and very far between but having Phil along, we were able to further our bird education. Thanks Phil! Besides the flowers, birds and waterfall, another highlight was coming across a Canyon Tree Frog. It jumped just as Phil walked by or we wouldn’t have seen the little 2 1/2 inch guy. Click here for my last sighting of this tiny creature. L-R: Joyce, Canyon Tree Frog, Judi

  1. I love treefrogs, especially ones that change color as extremely as these guys do. I think they have the best camo of any of our desert vertebrates.

    How very cool! We found one of these on the 18th, south of the cave on Cave Creek! (It climbed up the pant-leg of one of our stewards-to-be. Wish I’d had a camera ready!) We’ve also found them at the Jewel of the Creek, and on a private easement at the high end of Willow Springs Wash. It’s nice to see them coming back…
