  • Description

    Recording notes : A misnomer? the harsh, jabbing, throaty croaks of Tree Frogs lead the action. By contrast, Fire-Bellied Toads emit their soft sonar bleeps. A Water Rail stirs briefly. Although softly spoken, the Edible Toads are perceptible now and then. This short scene ends peacefully enough as the rushes stir and Skylark sings. Perhaps the title is an apt one after all?
