Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a few dozen (or maybe a few hundred, I haven't counted) frogs living outside my window and they are constantly making sounds. What exactly is the purpose of this? I imagine that they must somehow be communicating but what are they conveying which requires constantly croaking?

I think it's something along the lines of, "Hey baby...how you doin'?"

:wink:

They're looking for mates.

Sounds like they are vampire frogs and planning an attack on qntty's larder.

Well, there are the ones saying that, and then there are others singing "O' Solo Mio" and a few out there calling, "Hey, there's a party at the pond tonight, you're all invited!" Oh, and there's the one you don't hear...he's furiously posting a thread in GD asking, "I think this froglette likes me, but I'm afraid to call out like the others, what should I do?"
