My MIA Green treefrogs

It has been pretty warm here for a bit and the familiar
A Female Green Treefrog
My Florida Green Treefrog
green lizards/anoles and southern toads have all
been returning, a little more each day.
In fact today, we had our first ruby-throated hummingbird
at the kitchen window since last fall.
The beautiful yellow finches (snow birds) are here in the
highest numbers since we moved in and of course the visiting
Robins are
happy to bathe with our resident birds.
But what is sorely missing are my little green treefrogs.
(Yes, the correct spelling is green treefrog according to UF Biologists)
They are such a treasure to us and we have sadly noticed that each year,
there are fewer of them than the year before.
Now with spring in full swing in Florida and all of the others checking in,
it is more than just a little concerning that we have not seen even one by now.
Many Florida Biologists consider them to be the bellwether of our states'
overall well being, so this cannot be good news.
