A visit from the Easter.... Frog?

Last night, while getting ready to watch a movie, my hubby noticed this little guy sitting on our window:

He's a Spring Peeper; and he and his relatives have been singing away for the past few days, hoping to find mates.  There must be hundreds of them out in our neighbor's pond, because their sound is deafening (okay, maybe that's an overstatement... but they're pretty loud).
Click here to hear what they sound like (thanks Wikipedia).

In the six years we've lived here, I don't think I've seen one of these little guys in the flesh.  Kinda cool that he (she?) paid us a visit.  Spring is definitely here!

They are loud buggers -- we have them at a pond near our camp and they croak away for hours. Is it a mating call? I always wondered.
