 Years ago Doris Dolt told me that Gray Tree Frogs will climb the side of a house.  Well, some time after that I noticed movement under my bed as I was getting ready for work.  It was a Gray Tree Frog who had climbed up to my second story window and let himself in.  I took him down on the lawn at the foot of a tree and some bushes and wished him good luck.  The dew was very heavy and I am sure he did safely.  This occurred near the  foot of White Rocks on Route 140 in Wallingford.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Tree Frog who thinks he's a bird

Neighbor, fellow birder and cousin Leslie has lots of great birds on her property - but she recently noticed a very odd one roosting in a bluebird box.
