Just how much did he eat?

Two medium bullfrogs sit together at the edge of the pond.

We are a bit concerned about the status of the frogs in the Ponderosa.  We have been consistently counting at least one large and two medium bullfrogs.  We also have one froglet.  Since the night heron appeared, we have only been able to spot one frog and the froglet.  We are hopeful that the others are hiding.  This is a picture of the two missing frogs.

Thankfully, there appears to be no change in the large pond.  The frog count there remains at two large bullfrogs and one, possibly two,  small green frogs.

The night heron had a good meal at Dragonwyck Sanctuary yesterday morning, so we are expecting that he may return.  We checked periodically throughout the night, but we didn’t see him.  We don’t have enough fish and frogs to sustain that big boy for long!
