You can’t escape hearing them, but it’s infrequent that you get to see one, especially up close.
The Coqui Frog, the tiny tree frog that sings that familiar evening song on St. John evenings.
Susan Sypniewski recently stayed at Wings Over Water on Devers Bay, and not only spotted a Coqui in the daylight, but got it on her finger and got a very good picture. (Click the picture to enlarge.)
“He was hanging out on the inside wall of the pool above the water line,” says Susan. ” I pushed him onto the ledge, grabbed my camera and put him on my finger. I had to take a few pictures because it was hard to focus but I finally got it. Then he hopped away.”
Missing the evening chorus? Enjoy a minute or so of Coqui singing below. They’re the ones that sing “co-KEY, co-KEY.”
