Squirrel Treefrog Video

Hyla squirella (Squirrel Treefrog) video calling in the flooded meadow on the 2014 inaugural Frog Watch night. In the background, you can hear a persistent short loud "peeping" this is Gastrophryne carolinensis (Eastern Narrow-mouthed Toad), an occasional loud "tick-tick-tick" that sounds like two pebbles or marbles being hit against each other this is Acris gryllus dorsalis (Florida Cricket Frog), and you might be able to hear others!
