BARKING FROGS OF LOST MAPLES: This recording features a night chorus of Barking Frogs (Craugastor augusti) calling from limestone bluffs at Lost Maples State Natural Area in the Hill Country of Texas. Recorded at 11:10pm, 6 March 2017. Listen also for the gurgling of the Sabinal River.
ALTHOUGH IT WAS early March, a warm rain the day before and humid weather had stimulated the frogs to call. I was delighted, because I didn't think they'd be calling this early in the season. The temperature dropped into the 60s the next day and only a few frogs were sounding off the following night.
