Frogs that scream as they jump.

Asked December 28, 2019, 9:38 PM EST

North of Chelsea Michigan I run into frogs in the summer that's emit a loud scream as they jump when I approach. What's specie might they be? They jump multiple times across the surface of the water.

Can you describe what they look like? Big, small, coloring, markings? That could help a bit-thanks!

I am most suspicious it is a leopard frog, as they will produce a bit of a scream when feeling threatened:
