  1. That's hilarious, I was joking around with Christine about it being more of dink than a tink, and here you go and upload a tink:

Our first "Dink frog", genus Diasporus. The name refers to the very brief whistle/ting call of the male, like a notification on your phone. I did not hear this actual call. Colombia,Colombia 2022,Diasporus gularis,Esmereldas Robber Frog,Geotagged,San Cipriano Reserve,South America,Summer,World

"Diasporus diastema" is a species of frog in the family Eleutherodactylidae. Common names include common tink frog or dink frog, supposedly because of the loud metallic "tink" sound that the male frog makes during the night.
