Fowler’s toads resemble American toads in appearance but can be easily distinguished from them by voice. Fowler’s toad calls are sharp, high nasal trills issued in short blasts lasting 1-4 seconds. These toads are relatively common on the coast and are less common inland. They breed in freshwater or brackish ponds, marshes and vernal pools.
