I’m re-posting this photo of an American Toad in the yard. It was just hiding in the grass and didn’t mind that I took a photo of it. This is the dark green color phase, the other color phase is dark brown.

This is a picture I took a few years ago of a hairy woodpecker pecking on a tree in Michigan. They like to get the insects from under the bark. You can see some of these pieces of bark on the snow. They are delightful birds that will make a sharp “Peeeek!” sound if they are startled. They are similar in markings to the Downy Woodpecker, but they are larger.
This is a photo of an American Toad hiding in the grass in the yard. It is a very large toad, and darker in color. Their color can range from brown to dark green, depending on the temperature. They can live for several years. There is another toad that is less common, called the Fowler’s Toad.
