    Spring Peepers 2019

    Late this afternoon I was sitting out with a book, and I thought I could almost barely hear spring peepers.
    As the sun was going down in the evening, I stuck my head out the patio door, and by-damn! It was them again.

    I will be sleeping with the window open tonight!

    I so-o-o love to listen to the spring peepers. To me they are the melody of spring, green shoots, new life.

    I often think of them in winter, hunkered down in the frozen muck. The spring thaw is everything to the little amphibians.

    If I ever need to explain happiness, this would be it. Able to move, able to eat again, able to mate (that's what all the peeping is about, I suppose!)

    This thread inspired me to go to a website that identifies bird songs. They are singing this morning all over the place and Iím trying to figure out who is producing the dominant song around here.

    I didnít have any luck. I listen to songs of robins, Cardinals and Jayís óthose are not it.

    Song sparrows are so dominant in their singing in spring and lovely to hear.

    Not a bluebird, We don’t have them in the city. I listen to a couple sparrow songs because we have so many sparrows around and maybe it is a sparrow. There is a sub species of sparrow that was created here in my neighborhood they are unique they have unique markings.

    My little pond is full of frog eggs. The peepers have been loud. It won't be long till the "sheep frogs" (actually toads) come back. They are super loud!
