Hi Micah! Welcome to Project Noah! You have a great start to your spottings here, however, the name you have in the Scientific Name field is a common name. If you do not know the scientific name for an organism, you should leave that area blank and mark the box for help to ID. I have adjusted this one for you.

There are two different species of Gray Treefrog found in Maryland, I can't tell you which ones these are. The genus is
Hyla.
