Waiting for Wood Frog Calls.....

Reports have come in of wood frogs (Rana sylvatica) calling south of Duluth (around Solon Springs, WI) AND north of Duluth.  So now I am waiting for them to start calling here!

One wood frog sounds like 'quark-quark-quark' and a full chorus of wood frogs make a huge racket.

Listen to this chorus of wood frogs heard about this time two years ago:

Wood frogs will call during the day as well as evening and night.  Listen for them on your next walk through the woods or local parks- pretty much anywhere that there are small to medium wetlands.


  1. Finally.... Spring ! (well at least after this next snow storm tomorrow).

  2. They've been calling atop the water on my pond in Poplar, WI for 3 days now. I love those little buggers.

  3. I guess I was a little early in calling it spring. Maybe next week.

    Anyone else hearing wood frogs or peepers?
