Found during a survey of VINP in association with Northern Michigan University from February 27 through March 5, 2016.
This is Eleutherodactylus antilliensis. The individual in the photo is the one I recorded doing the "tu-wheek" call. The Pseudacris-like trill in the background is another individual of the same species, shown in the photo on the metal sign post.
These frogs were calling from roadside tree stumps after heavy afternoon rains. -
These frogs were heard calling at night after a light rain in the afternoon. The two heard in the recording are different individuals than the one in the photo.
The upward trilling sound in the second recording is also E. antilliensis.
The final recording shows how they stagger their calls when calling together.
