Night Sounds of the


Outside my house, the frogs are calling on the Thamalakane River.  Bell frogs, bull frogs, and many I can’t identify.  They are most active from sunset until dinner time.  By bedtime (about 10 pm), they’ve closed shop for the night.  It gets pretty cold these days, and no doubt the dipping temperatures send the frogs off to bed.

These wonderful frog calls were recorded from the patio of my house in Maun, Botswana on July 22, 2016 at 7:30 pm.  The video is focused on lights in Maun on the other side of the river.  The image at the top of the post is moonrise over the Okavango River at Ngepi Camp in the Caprivi Strip of Namibia!  Caprivi is at the northern end of the Okavango Delta and Maun is at the southern end.
