Expert Response

Depending on location, frogs move into aquatic breeding sites from January to July. Male frogs move first and vocalize in early spring through early summer to attract females. Pacific chorus frogs, Pseudacris regilla are usually the first to breed and the non-native bullfrog, Lithobates catesbeianus are often the last.
