Moonlight serenade

July 13, 2014

Plains Brown Tree FrogIn recent weeks we have been serenaded to sleep by a single frog calling intermittently somewhere near the back door. Listen to the call by clicking on the audio bar below.

We think it is the frog pictured above, a Plains Brown Tree Frog (Litoria paraewingi) which we found close by, hiding under a plastic sheet covering a firewood stack. Well, perhaps it’s not this particular frog, but it does sound like that species.

Meanwhile, down at our large dam and adjacent wetland area, the frog of the month is the Common Froglet (Crinia signifera), which is present in large numbers and in full voice (click below to hear), though it is proving far too wary to allow a photograph. It can also be heard in the background of the previous recording.
