Default Gray Tree Frog

Last Fall I found gray tree frog in my yard. I live on a barrier island with the Atlantic in front and salt water marshes behind the island so I wondered how the frog ever found its way to my yard. It's the only frog I've ever seen on the island. However, the frog made it though the winter and it was at my small backyard pond which the Fowler's Toads use for mating and I also heard the Gray Tree Frog calling. Between the frog and the toads things were noisy, but I also heard at intervals a high pitched yip yip yip yip yip yip call. Do Tree Frogs make this sort of call? The web sites with frog calls only have the frog's trilling call.

Kind of.... Listen to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bzotS1ow0Q

Is that what you heard? if not, Perhaps the peepers. They arrive fairly early.

You'll have a lot of fun if you go on and explore in this one. Frog and Toad Calls Some are really awsome

Thanks. The first call is what I called the "trilling" call, the actual sound made while mating which is later is what I called the yip yip yip yip yip call. I thought I could hear two different tree frogs. There aren't any Spring Peepers here but there are hundreds just a few miles west in the NWR.

Very cool.

I hope he (or she) finds a mate...and some friends.

If you find out, please update us.

...Could it have arrived as an egg stuck to a wetland bird?
