From Reptiles of AZ (the link above): 

Couch’s spadefoots remain buried in the soil for 8-10 months and then emerge at the onset of the summer monsoons. This species is frequently encountered on roads during warm, humid summer nights. Adults are nocturnal, but metamorphs [Anne notes: like this little one] are often active by day.
