You can say that again - I love it!

Back when our two boys were much younger and we had a swimming pool, we
always had an abundance of Tree Frogs (*Hyla versicolor*). The boys took
great joy in making the frogs sing simply by mimicking their chirp, so it
isn't really surprising (to me) that frogs will respond in this fashion.

Hmmm... I wonder if there are birds that have learned to hunt for frogs by
getting them to reveal their whereabouts this way?
