Gray Tree Frog

Hyla versicolor


I am able to actually ID this species exactly due to the calls it makes, slightly slower and lower pitched than the Cope's Grey Tree Frog. Here is a link that provides sound files for the different calls that the Cope's and Grey tree frogs make:


Found on the underside of the top of the above ground pool. (pool is currently down for repairs, and the frogs have spawned and have hundreds of tadpoles in the remaining water). We are waiting until they the tadpoles have legs and have morphed into frogs before repairing the liner and refilling the pool.


in the second picture you can see where the frog was hiding in early evening making it's calls.

Thank you Jeanette! I love listening to these little guys and gals. They often start calling in mid-day if there is a storm coming, or even light rain, also just before dark they start a chorus through out the back yard.
