Default Bull Frog?

Looking at frogs that belong in Iowa, this looks to be the closest match. I am kind of surprised it was here as we have no standing water except for bird baths. We've not had that much rain either.

If not a Bull Frog, what could it be?
Thank you.

Had I identified this correctly?

It looks like a bullfrog to me. Bullfrogs get evicted from their ponds and sent in search of their own territories, since every pond can only support so many of these predators. My guess is that this one was out searching for a new home.

Thank you, I appreciate that. I hope that fellow found a nice place. We've never seen them around here before.

Also, we just discovered a Plains Leopard Frog at our place.
