In Masai-Mara Park in Kenya, recordist Bernard Fort recorded these small, melodious frogs during an evening rain.
GELLERMAN: We leave you this week in Kenya, in the pouring rain.
[SOUND OF RAINFALL]
GELLERMAN: In Masai Mara National Reserve, small frogs create a sound similar to African stone xylophones. Who knew? Bernard Fort found shelter from the storm under a small wooden bridge where he recorded this evening chorus. It’s on a CD he calls “Nocturnal Concerts of the World.”
