When you realize that the destruction of Dry Pond Swamp cut the 
population of Northern Cricket Frogs down here by probably far more than 
all of those in MN it puts things in perspective. You'd probably enjoy 
recording them down here, where a single site can have hundreds, if not 
thousands. They can form the steady background behind other frogs. They 
are in no danger here, a very common frog.

It's actually more difficult here to record just a few calling. They 
tend to call in mass.

We also have the Southern Cricket Frog here. Longer legs, comes in 
endless color patterns. Call is slightly different. They are also to be 
found in huge numbers.
