Southern Brown Tree Frog Litoria ewingii

Also known as: Brown Tree Frog, Whistling Tree Frog and Ewing’s Tree Frog.

Distribution: Most of Victoria (not the north-west).

Conservation: Not considered threatened.

Habitat: Lots of places! Often found in gardens and suburban ponds, puddles, flooded grasslands, dams, lakes. It breeds in still waters, but adults can be found long distances from standing water.

Call: A whirring, almost soothing, fairly high-pitched pulsing call. They call mainly in spring and autumn, but may be heard at other times.

And another thing: Southern Brown Tree Frogs are also found in New Zealand where they are an invasive species (not native, introduced) and have continued to persist and spread.
