Barking Treefrog - "A Large Breeding Chorus of Florida Gopher Frogs" [Official Audio]
Description:

Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/sounds-of-north-american-frogs/science-nature/album/smithsonian Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/5tM75Ja4m0O1k6aeWPRwvp?si=a63fpAlUSkKQRUBUOOwF8g The amphibian song revival begins here! This classic of both biological fieldwork and natural sound recordings, originally released by Folkways in 1958, presents 57 species of frogs and toads on 92 tracks, digitally remastered from the original master tapes. Compiled and narrated by renowned herpetologist Charles M. Bogert, these sounds were recorded in swamps, lakes, woods, creeks, and road-side ditches all over North America. Sit back and let the bewitching tones of the Pig Frog, Dwarf Mexican Treefrog, Little Green Toad, Southwestern Woodhouse's Toad, Great Basin Spadefoot, and other famed vocalists entrance and amaze you. In a time when frog and toad populations are in rapid decline, this recording reminds us of the remarkable diversity and beautiful music we are in danger of losing. Extensive notes with a new introduction by Richard G. Zweifel, bibliography, discography, and photographs are included.
