A Deer, A Toad, and Two Little Birds

In Shenandoah National Park.

A Toad in my Driveway.
According to Froglife, "Frogs have smooth, moist skin and long, stripy legs and are likely to be found in damp habitats in the garden. Toads have warty skin, golden eyes and prefer to crawl rather than hop; if threatened a toad can puff itself up to appear bigger. Toads can tolerate drier habitats than frogs and spend less time in water."

I think these are house finches.


  1. Cant help but think that "A Toad in My Driveway" sounds like the name of some form of experimental band!!
