OK, so I have been recording frog calls in the county SE of me over the last year or so as part of the Texas Amphibian Watch program and for HERP. But I find myself having trouble with two species that live there. I think I've figured it out, but I wanted some extra opinions if anyone cares to venture a guess.

The two species in question are Scaphiopus couchii and Scaphiopus hurterii. I know what couchii sounds like but I don't have a good recording of hurterii for comparison (holbrooki, yes, but not hurterii). I have seen both species around there so I know they are both there.

So, anyone want to have a try at identifying these? I think I have them correct now, but I just wanted to get some second opinions.
I know what some of them are because I saw the frogs, but I will put them in as a sort of positive control. They are all either couchii or hurteri.

Number 1 -



Number 2 -



Number 3 -



Number 4 -



Number 5 -



Number 6 -



Number 7



Thanks for playing.

EDIT - Now that I have them up side by side like this, it seems pretty obvious, but I will leave it up anyway.
