Gray Treefrog

Hyla spp.

Gray treefrogs are relatively common amphibians at Chert Hollow Farm. We often hear their trill in the spring. They are hard to spot in the woods due to their excellent camouflage, but we often see them clinging to walls of farm buildings during the warm months of the year. We’re happy to have them around eating insects & other invertebrates.

Confusingly, some gray treefrogs, such as the one below, are green; these are not to be confused with green treefrogs (Hyla cinerea), which do not generally occur in Boone County.
