If it quacks…is it a duck??

Our Director, Nancy, reported that during recent monsoon rains here in the valley she got numerous calls about ducks stuck in storm drains. The callers heard lots of quacking from the drains and assumed that a rescue was needed. What the caller really heard was not a duck, but a frog. Yep, a quacking frog. There is a type of frog that can sound very much like a duck. Nancy noted that it would be quite difficult for a full grown duck to get caught in a storm drain. Remember, if it quacks like a duck (especially in the rainy season) it could be a frog!!!
