The First Peepers of Spring!

Mid-70s today, my first day out of Polarfleece since last autumn,  and the first time this year I've heard a chorus of Spring Peepers.  I walked around a pond in the Skidmore woods and the sound was deafening!  Listen!

I just came inside from listening for our peepers and woodcock, but not a peep from either yet.

Yeh, you've covered in your last two posts, what I've always considered the first two signs of spring: skunk cabbage and spring peepers!

oh the best part is when you got them to STOP as they always do when you try to get close ...that captures the essence of it for me!

yes and I saw another personal sign of spring, looked out back and saw a TURTLE basking on a log, out in the slough behind the apt.

Love that sound.

Oh! Spring is coming!!! I am 'desperate' to get out to the vernal pools to hear the wood frogs before they're done with their raucous bacchanalian festivities. :-) "Love is in the air!"

Loved the sound, I am trying to do more with those videos now that I know how simple it is. Thanks to Ellen for her inspiration!
I've really enjoyed all your blogs lately.

Thanks for all your nice comments, dear readers. With record warm temperatures this coming week, I'll bet ALL the frogs will be very vocal and all the amphibians will be on the move to their mating pools. Love is in the air!
