Note Recordings were made between 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM; "Temperature was 55 - 60 degrees from on a sunny afternoon. Toads called only occasionally, not continuously. These appeared to be more encounter calls than advertisement calls. Toads were seen swimming out occasionally, and several attempted amplexus encounters between two toads (presumbably male) were seen and recorded." -- Gary Nafis; Local Time: Between 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM
