The separation...
of the parotoid gland from the cranial crest is more consistent with B. americanus. Fowler's parotoid usually contacts the postorbital ridge of the crest. The two species are know to interbreed.

a buff American?
Bufo Americanus?

 
I'm being told
Bufo fowleri (Fowler's Toad)

 
noisy little critters, those Fowler's Toads
I'd trust others on this one, John. Am definitely no expert.
If the ID is firm, great! If not, then:
here's a page that says they potentially get their
groove on with Am. Toad. That should make ID even more fun!
