Chorus frogs croon, spring on the way
Spring is on the way. How do I know? The Western Chorus frogs (Pseudacris triseriata) herald its arrival! And with this tiny species of tree frog, the more the merrier.
Many of the ponds at the nature center, including the small ones at the Homesite are filled with their froggy choruses. The small gray males collect in great numbers to crooooooon, hoping to attract mates. And, as we all know, hope springs eternal, even in the tiniest of hearts.
