>>I thought some of you treefrog fans might enjoy this pacific treefrog video. It shows a group of calling male pacific treefrogs. The video was taken in Napa County, California.

Thanks for sharing. I have heard this species a lot but have never gone out at night to try to catch them in the act. I am certainly glad that I don't live near one of the breeding sites.

BTW, ignore the kooks who claim that the Pacific treefrog is a "chorus" frog. It is nested phylogenetically outside of Pseudacris, and only taxonomic politics is keeping it and the California treefrog in Pseudacris instead of where it belongs: Hyla. Pseudacris is a genus that evolved in the Great Plains, and its members are secondarily terrestrial. Hyla regilla is an excellent climber, a treefrog that did not evolve the small toe pads and reduced webbing that characterize Pseudacris. Keeping Hyla regilla and Hyla cadaverina in Pseudacris would result in a heterogeneous Pseudacris, so heterogeneous that it is useless.
