Eastern Common Froglet
Crinia signifera

A small ground dwelling frog, the Common Froglet is one of Eastern Australia's most common and widespread species. Its cricket-like chirping can be heard all day and all year round. A widespread and common species found in great numbers in flooded grassland or marshes.

Males call from among vegetation at the waters edge or floating in open water supported by vegetation. The call is a series of three to five pulsed calls, with a chirping quality, rapidly repeated in a long series - 'crick crick crick crick crick'.

Southern Brown Tree Frog
Litoria ewingi

An agile climber and jumper. Like most of our small tree frogs, this species is a voracious insectivore.

Males usually call from the ground or in low vegetation, at the water's edge or in water, floating amongst the vegetation. The call is a series of rapid harsh, whirring pulsing notes repeated 5-15 times - 'creeeeeee creee creee cree cree cree'. The first note is usually the longest.
