Spring has sprung, according to our amphibian friends. The Spring Peepers are one of the first frogs to start calling and they were out in fury last night. They live in moist woods but breed in adjacent wetlands. They stay pretty much to the ground and hibernate under logs and loose bark. We don’t keep a “tidy” woods so this is perfect for them and with the neighboring spring-fed stream, they are pretty happy. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them before, but it’s rare.
National Geographic has a color picture and a place you can click to hear their purrrreeeek call.
