Title: Evening Frog Calls


An impressive chorus of frogs recorded at 9:00 pm on July 1, 2010 at Lake Ramsey Savannah State Wildlife Management Area near Covington, LA. Over the constant staccato "machine gun" call of the Pinewoods Treefrog (Hyla femoralis) you can hear the repetitive nasal "trill" of the Cope's Gray Treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis) and the frequent sheep-like bleats of the Eastern Narrow-mouthed Toad (Gastrophryne carolinensis). The “marble clicking” call of the Southern Cricket Frog (Acris gryllus) is present in the background, and an occasional call of a Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) is also present.
