MWC Eco-brief: Frog Count Fun

🐸 How many different types of frogs do you hear? Scroll to the bottom of this page for the answer.
The answer is...five different species of frogs!
  1. The loud clicking call is the Blanchard's cricket frog, which reaches the size of a quarter. 
  2. The melodic trill is the eastern gray tree frog, which can reach the size of a golf ball.
  3. The Cope's gray treefrog sounds similar to the eastern gray treefrog, but higher pitched and faster. It too reaches the size of a golf ball.
  4. The sporadic call that sounds like off-tune plucking of banjo strings is the green frog, which can reach the size of a softball.
  5. Lastly, the deep bellowing call is the American bullfrog, which can reach the size of a dessert plate. 

How do the smaller frogs' calls drown out the larger frogs' calls? I'll cover that in an upcoming blog post!
