Frog Calls – Eastern Banjo Frog [Pobblebonk] (Limnodynastes dumerilii)
This colloquial names of this species reflect it’s ‘bonk’ call, which sounds a bit like a banjo string being plucked! Males of the species produce a single ‘bonk’ note, with other individuals often calling in response. When many frogs call and respond, it creates a delightful chorus of notes at slightly different pitches and is a unique sound of south-east Australian wetlands.
