Knob-handed shrub frog Raorchestes tuberohumerus
This is a tiny bush frog found throughout the Western Ghats in Karnataka. The major habitat of this species is short shrubs and herbs on cultivated land, roadsides and forests. It calls generally from a height of less than a couple of feet above the ground, but on a few occasions I saw them calling from overhead. This is also probably the only bush frog I heard even at mid day.
The call can be identified by its pattern (short bursts of distinct clicks) and the sharp, higher-pitched nature of the clicks, which give this frog its other common name- "typewriter frog".
