Our latest squatter is an American Toad. We’ve never had one in the yard before – just in the hood, but this one was visible (and audible). I know they aren’t rare but I always get a kick out of seeing what makes the noise. Here is his YouTube debut – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EITPpFd2iSM.
Also this is the first day I’ve seen a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Only a single one at the feeder, but he’s been gorging himself.
