More Signs of Spring

Standard

Spring PeeperThe spring peepers are peeping up a storm tonight!! I love when they first start — it’s usually in early to mid March here in CT and it’s really the very first sign that spring is on it’s way. The air is still chilly but starting to warm up and the peeper’s voices are kind of subdued, and they aren’t peeping very fast. As soon as the temperatures start to rise and the days start getting longer tho’, the peeping warms up too!! Now that they’ve emerged from the mud at the bottom of some pond or maybe from under some dead leaves on the ground somewhere, nature takes over and they start peeping to attract a mate. And with the racket they’re making tonight, there must be some real jostling for position among the males!!!
