Songs from the Pond

An Amphibian Serenade

​Birds aren’t the only singers in the spring! Come learn about the beautiful music produced by the amphibians right in your own backyard!

From the earliest songs of Wood Frogs and Spring Peepers to the endlessly entertaining songs of Green Frogs, Bullfrogs and American Toads, there’s always something to hear from the ponds and wetlands. We’ll look and listen to songs of NE Ohio’s frogs and toads from the initial ice melt of March through the early summer songs of June. There may be a few more singers than you realized!

Species included: Wood Frog, Spring Peeper, Western Chorus Frog, Leopard Frog, Pickerel Frog, Gray Treefrog, Green Frog, Bullfrog, and American Toad. The program moves chronologically from the earliest species and ends with the raucous return of American Toads to the pond. field recordings and photos are included for all the species listed in the program description. Sonograms may also be incorporated for helpful illustration of songs. Some species have comparison recordings with similar frogs.
