Re: Re: frogs

I used to think they were saying, "Bundle it up," when I was a child. They did sound like a chorus with basso through contralto backed by the peepers. I never hear sounds like that now.

How interesting to call it a "bundle it up" call. I'd never heard that.
Does sound like that though, come to think of it. I've only heard it called a
Bullfrog "Jug-o-rum" call. Which really applies to the Bullfrogs I've heard.

I think all frog calls, like bird calls are interesting. I would not
necessarily say they were pretty calls, unlike bird song....but they are very
unique to each, and definitely amusing.

I can't imagine any song being more beautiful than the bullfrogs that lived
in the swamp behind our house when I was growing up. There were all sorts
of singers, but that low 'bundle-it-up' was the best. It used to scare my
little city friends out of their wits.
