A Wood frog chorus in Bare Pond

Wood frogs breed in vernal pools such as Bare Pond in Webster Woods.

In March 2024, hundreds of frogs visited the pond, and made quite a racket.  Watch them in action and listen to them here.  (Turn up the volume if you want to get the full experience.)

The inflated vocal sacs visible in this photo amplify the frog’s mating call, allowing it to be heard from a longer distance.


Thanks to Richard Primack for alerting us to the arrival of the frogs!
