Video shot from my hotel parking lot last night.  

I know it is black, it was dark out.

Ewwwww.......

Turn up the volume if you can stand it.

There must have been a million of them out there.

They were so loud we could hear them from inside the truck with the engine running.  It was deafening at the edge of the pavement

You should have opened the door and invited them in. They were singing the song of their people.

When I was the popo we had a call from a guy about what sounded like an alarm or someone in trouble during the wee hours. Officer went, but
found nothing. A few weeks later he called again. I went to his  house and listened. I heard what I thought might be it and he came to the door.

When I asked it that was the sound he told me yes. I told him it was a Whip-poor-will.  He said they didn't have them in NY.

No, not kidding. Got some pleasure in that when he asked if it would continue all night I said yes, as long as the bird wanted to.

He might be going for bigger game. There are Deere out there that have tracks and stand 15' tall at the shoulder.

There were several species going at once.  I heard a bullfrog too but didn't get it recorded.  I shined a light out there and only saw 1 set of yellow eyes that was probably a cat.  

After the sun came up it just looked like a retention basin with weeds and cattails.

The noise level and quantity of them was impressive

Wonder what was the body count of the slain and devoured?

After all the hurricanes we had in in 2004-5, we were absolutely soaked. It sounded like that outside. The frogs were taking up residence on our windows behind the hurricane shutters when they were still up. It was pretty amazing.

I live in a more rural area so we always have night critter noises, but that was crazy loud. Not to mention the flood waters brought huge colonies of fire ants to everyone's yards. They must have been in the natural areas and undeveloped parcels of the neighborhood.

So what were the two things in the upper left corner?  

Deere or dogs?

Neither moved like a cat.

I never saw anything come out of the area.  It was only about 50'x50' after I saw it in the daylight.  Not really much water in it either

I agree as well.

When they get real unruly, I usually set the Bose Bluetooth soundbox at the door and play a little Atlanta Rhythm Section.

Seems to calm em right down.

Deere hunting???  Tractors or combines?

You're not from 'round here, are ya?

I sit out on my deck at night 'in the country' so this is quite normal. A Whipperwill is appertly not something most people are used to; I live near a pond so the frogs are pretty loud sometimes.

My aunt who is not from around here called up about hearing strange noises in her backyard every night.
Apparently there is one type of frog that sounds like a UFO and it scared the shit out of her.

I come over and hear basically the same thing that's in your video. She said "I think the military is doing some kind of exercises in my back yard."

I did tell him there was nothing I could do about it. His crestfallen face was priceless.
