Tropical Evening Chorus

Sometimes during this time of the year there’s no point in Nan & Pop having the TV going ‘cos they can’t hear it for the songs of the frogs, toads and crickets. The noise is even worse after rainfall and during the evening. Nan & Pop like the noise though because it is a sound of the tropics; reminiscent of balmy evenings, salt pools and palm trees.

Nan has taken a video just so that you can listen to these tropical noises for yourself. She stood just outside the family room sliding door. This is what we hear. Make sure you’ve got your sound on!

It took some time and a number of reference books but Nan has identified the types of frogs and toad responsible for those noises.When she can she will post their names and pics.

  1. That's so cool!!! I think I might be a bit scared though… they sound kind of big and ferocious those ones with deep voices! Is the fence to keep them out of your house?
    Thanks for sharing your noises with us.
    Love Teagan xx
