Transcript

[SFX PINE WOODS TREEFROG]

GELLERMAN: We leave you this week with a ribetting chorus.

[VOICES OF THE SWAMP, TRACK 3, by Lang Elliott and Ted Mack.]

GELLERMAN: The Apalachicola National Forest is the largest forest in Florida.
And it’s there, in a boggy spot, that these pine woods treefrogs lift their froggy voices in song. Listen closely and you’ll also hear occasional notes from southern cricket frogs and green treefrogs. Lang Elliot and Ted Mack recorded this amphibian sing-along for their CD “Voices of the Swamp.”
