foty Southern leopard frogs + Upland chorus frogs, American toads, Spring peepers

Our backyard just after dark last night - North Georgia ... this is the longer recording. Listen closely for the S leopard frogs which make two altelrnating calls: they chuckle at you, and they do a grunt that sounds like either a finger rubbing a balloon or a miniature motorcycle being cranked. A plane flying over gets them going! They had a terrible season last year so it's really good to hear them again. All 4 species are doing GREAT judging by their roars:

American toads: hi-pitched trill/whistle
Spring peepers: like chicks peeping
Upland chorus frogs: ascending grinding calls
Southern leopard frogs: chuckling + grunting

>> video in our lower yard just after dark last night 2-15-18, North Georgia ... btw I've yet to spot a single one this month!
