A long video of relaxing frog calls at night

Looking for some relaxing nature sounds? The audio in this video was recorded next to a pond in northeast Ohio on a warm summer night. Bullfrog and Green Frog calls dominate the sound, but you can also hear the distant trills of a few Gray Treefrogs, and a few birds and insects. Please enjoy!

The three species of frogs heard in the video are the American Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana), the Green Frog (Rana clamitans), and the Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor). Below are photos of each of these species. If you like the photos, you can click on each photo to purchase a print or digital download. More videos and recordings of calling frogs, including frog song ringtones for phones, can be found on my frog song page.

The American Bullfrog has a bellowing call that sounds a bit like a foghorn. In the photo below, you can see how the vibrations from his call sends water droplets flying into the air.

The Green Frog has a short “plunk” sound, reminiscent of a person plucking a banjo string.
