Voice: Call is a high drawn-out, insect-like "beeeeeeeeeeee". Many liken it to the bleating of a newborn lamb. We have heard them call from April through October. Breeding choruses usually follow heavy rains, especially late summer rains of 2" or more.
Habitat: Can be found in a variety of habitats including old fields and cedar glades. They require moist logs for cover and ants and termites for food. Usually breeds in temporarily flooded ditches and low areas of fields that have been created by heavy rains.
Range: Occurs statewide with the exception of the eastern mountains.
