Email to Swampfox, he's been posting audio lately. He might even add some guitar accompaniment. Or if you email it to me, I can probably put it on YouTube for you, and I promise it won't come out like this.

Thanks, but not worth the bother. I actually really like the page I linked to about the frogs in the northeast, with the sounds each makes all there in one spot. I hear weird noises from time to time, and would be nice to know it's a frog (and what kind of frog) and not, say, a mountain lion.

I startled a frog the other day which only hopped a foot from where it had been and then froze, so it was very visible and posed for a photo: a green frog, most likely, from your page.

Really fine collection of frog songs.

I can hear the spring peepers from my bedroom. I like when they all go silent at once...I imagine a deer or a fox walking nearby. I wait with bated breath until they all start up again.

Yes, indeed, a most entertaining link. Enjoyed about 10' of solid frog talk earlier. I think I'll give it a try with a blue tooth speaker. Distinguishing "grrruut, errrrrrrah!, waaaaaaaaaaa!, guck!, eeek! " etc should be good entertainment as well as being educational.

Or an orienteer / trail runner. I run at dusk (and into the dark) all too often, and sometimes my presence stifles sounds (the marsh full of peepers going quiet when I pass), other times it provokes sounds (beaver tailslaps, which on several occasions have caused me to just about jump out of my skin, I was so startled; but maybe that's only fair, since presumably I had scared the heck out of the beaver).

And then once you mastered the frog sounds there are always the bird sounds. Way more than 12, and most birds make several different sounds to fit different circumstance (defending territory, attracting a mate, giving location, alarm, etc.)

I'm used to be listening to sounds to figure out what birds are around and hearing something and then realizing, oh, it's just a frog. Now the thought would be, cool, it's a frog.

Janet, nice photo!
