Frog "siren"

Let's see if I can post this video here!

The other night a Deputy sheriff came to our house to investigate 4 reports of an alarm sounding... as he got closer to our pond he learned that the "alarm sound" was really frogs in our pond.  Here's a video as I take Chickee out at dusk to try and capture the sound on video.

Tomorrow, a post on 'organic design' vs 'analytical design' the result of a conversation with Doris Chan.

So funny! I can see how a city slicker might think it's an alarm.

Wow! The froggies have quite the vocals on them! I never knew that was the frogs that made that noise. I always thought it was crickets.

I have a fish pond in my backyard. Yikes they get noisy in the warm summer nights! Mine are peckerels. The place I used to live had different kinds of frogs. I jumped out of my skin and whirled around one time thinking a billy goat was about to ram me....only to discover it was a frog!

This is the funniest ever! I think the boys have played it 20 times, searching for the frogs in the shots of the pond! LOL! X "I just gotta know how big those suckers are!"
