Advertisement calls of two male Raorchestes charius. This was recorded near a coffee estate in Kabbinakad, Coorg.

This species calls throughout the day as well (unlike many bush frogs that are active in the evening). These individuals were on short shrubs, but in areas devoid of shrubs (such as high altitude grasslands and mountain peaks), they readily call from grass clumps close to the ground.

Great to hear the vocalisation of this species. Along with the image this forms a nice record.

The call is quite clear. Some birds can also be heard in the background :). Thanks for sharing.
