Name that Critter

photo:  wikipedia.org

Cute, huh!    It's an inch long from nose to tail.   This time of year they come out to sing and at night from a distance they sound like jingle bells.

Hint:  The Latin name is Pseudacris crucifer  [There's a cross-shaped marking on their backs]

Answer below the fold....

It's a Spring Peeper, a type of chorus frog.   I heard the first ones today.  It's really spring.   They don't kid around.
