Found this in the backyard. Anyone know what type of frog this is? Toad?

Eastern grey tree frog i believe 

They can also vary to a green coloration.

Pretty cool stuff. I’m over in PA where I lived my whole life. Never saw one of these until about 5 years ago. Now I have 5-10 around my house feeding under my outside lights in the dark every year.

Yes it’s a grey tree frog. In south Jersey where I live we have tons of them. At night you’ll hear them doing their mating sounds. 
 

Last night I had one somewhere on my upper balcony, which branches off from The master bed room. He wouldn’t shut up, and I wanted to sleep. So, I started playing the sounds of other male grey tree frogs, that shut him up.

I bet Ive been hearing these little guys for years but have been mistaking them for insects. Also have some bullfrogs around heard they are good eating anyone ever try?

Frog’s legs are a staple in French cousine, and yes I have had them and liked it.
