Backyard Frog Songs


“What kind of bird is that down by the pond making high-pitched noises?” It’s not a bird at all! It is the male frogs singing, looking for a mate! During spring and early summer frogs are singing loud right along with the birds. Can you find a pond or a puddle and spot the singers?

Suggestions to locate these amphibian singers:

  • Listen for high pitched noises, follow where the sound is the loudest.
  • Move slowly and quietly to avoid disturbing them.
  • Watch this video and find out just what species are singing in your yard.
