Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor)
Native to Fairfax County
This treefrog is one of our residents that is often heard, but rarely seen. The low, melodious trill, lasting for 1-3 seconds and ending abruptly, is often mistaken for crickets or the call of a bird. While similar in shape to the more familiar American toad, their skin is very different in appearance. These treefrogs are covered with many minute warts. Gray treefrogs also have sticky pads on their toes, which make them excellent climbers.
