Frogs of the Great Lakes Region Audio Album

Frog CD

This recording provides an auditory means to identify the frogs and toads (anurans) of the Great Lakes region. Acquiring the ability to identify anurans “by ear,” when applied throughout the spring, allows for an opportunity to accurately survey their diversity and abundance on any wetland, all accomplished without ever getting your feet wet.

The opening, instructional portion is a valuable tool for anyone wishing to learn to identify anurans of the area by their vocalizations, or for anyone participating in an organized frog and toad survey. Information is narrated over a background chorus of each anuran species in order of emergence and breeding through the season. Auditory characteristics and word-handles are also featured in addition to information on seasonal habits and habitat associations.

Following the instructional passages, thirteen environmental movements are arranged chronologically through the spring breeding season. While a useful follow-up to the instruction, they also provide over 50 minutes of relaxing listening pleasure. These sounds are sure to settle you “knee deep” into the lively pulse of spring wetlands.
