Natural Highlights: Green Treefrog


One of the most easily observed treefrogs in West Tennessee is the Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) which makes a distinctive quank call on warm spring nights. The males tend to gather in huge clusters and create a deafening chorus in hopes of attracting more females.  The beautiful bright green color with a yellow racing stripe down the sides is unmistakable.  This species is usually very easy to see and to hear on the Mineral Slough boardwalk during our annual Frog Chorus Walk.
