The signs of life

A skinned frog. So fresh, the eggs and eyes haven't dried out yet. Was it a bird, who did this?

There were tens of jumping fat, full of eggs  frogs. Probably more. We saw only  a tiny part of the migration away from the river. 
Up the hill they climbed. A very steep one. For how many days? Where are they gonna put these precious eggs? Are they eating on their journey?
There were patches of ice and ice cold ponds on their way. Hungry birds and squirrels.

Happy spring everyone!
