    I'm trying to identify a new frog song I heard tonight behind my house. I don't believe I've ever heard it before. There used to be a link to a MSU Michigan Frog Sounds page on this forum which I can no longer find. Anybody got it handy?

    Hmm, I couldn't get those files to play. I was hoping for the Michigan site that limited the possiblities to frogs known to exist in MI.

    Yeah, that's the site I was looking for thanks. Now I just have to remember what the sound was like..... Yeap, you are right Kirk it was the Gray Treefrog.

    Now I know this may be hard to believe, but you should go down to the Ann Arbor area and listen to the frogs. Researchers from U of M have developed a line of frogs whose song sounds quite similar to "Hail to the Victors". They will be featured this year at the UM vs MSU game.
