Named after their distinctive banjo-like calls, Eastern Banjo Frogs (Limnodynastes dumerilii) [also known as Pobblebonks!] are a type of burrowing frog found in South-eastern Australia. Males of the species produce a single ‘bonk’ note, with other individuals often calling in response. After periods of rain Banjo Frogs are most active and vocal, and in this recording dozens of individuals can be heard creating a unique soundscape at a small dam surrounded by woodland in north-east Victoria.
The tracks on this album are sections of a single-take recording made late one afternoon at this location. All five tracks feature the natural sounds of Eastern Banjo Frogs along with native birdsong from the surrounding box-ironbark woodland.
