Did you know toads scream?
We have ducks and geese but also beavers, toads, herons, and loads of other birds. So what's this about toads screaming? Well, often when I would walk near the pond I would hear an eeeek and then a small splash. I finally caught sight of what was making the eeek! The toads scared by my presence were screaming and jumping in the water to escape. When I looked up what Herons eat I realized they had a lot more than me to worry about.
Here is a bunch of photos I took (I tried to get a picture of the Heron but she was never around when I had my camera):
