American Toad Chorus
Artist: Chris RennaMassachusetts, USA
One of my favorite spring sounds here in New England is the call of Male American toads Anaxyrus americanus. This chorus was recorded in a swamp in Harvard, Massachusetts. The males sing at different frequencies and volumes in order to be noticed by females.
I believe the loud bird chirps are calls coming from a Red-bellied Woodpecker. In the distance other birdsong can be heard.
