Has anyone in the Wisconsin area, or northern midwest noticed a decline in toads after the long winter? We typically find them all over our yard and gardens. When the toadlets morph, we have hundreds in our yard at any one time, hard to walk and cut the grass trying to avoid the toads. Even before that though, they're everywhere. I have yet to see one this year. I'm wondering if it's possible that the long-term below average temperatures cut down their population. I have heard grey tree frogs, spring peepers, northern green and leopard frogs, and bullfrogs, but have not seen a single toad!

At first I thought it was because of a late spring, but with everything else out of hibernation, they should have dug up by now too.
