Listen to the sounds of frogs calling for mates.
After many dry seasons of not really noticing frogs around our dams , this year they have captured my attention .The recent heavy rains have stimulated our frog populations into vigorous breeding activity.
The males are calling to attract females . The females are ready to spawn and are attracted to the calls of a male . When they get together some more communication takes place .
Then a bit of clasping and spawning occurs. The female lays eggs and the male releases sperm onto them .
I can hear frogs ! What sort ? Its a mystery and solving it will be lots of fun !
Out this evening with the field guides and voice recorder to collect information .
