Toad Corner

 A toad has set up residence near the side door of our house. I occasionally jump when it jumps. Obviously, it does blend in quite well.

   American toads usually spend the day in piles of leaves, under rocks and logs, or in loose soil.

   I came around the corner of the house this morning — three hops, and it disappeared in the leaves.

 Mating took place almost 2 months ago. So, it might be checking out the neighborhood.

They’re active at dusk, and feed at night on insects and earthworms.
