Raucous peepers peeping from every damp location
The spring peepers (Pseudacris crucifer) have been calling for several days, but late this afternoon with all the rain, they seemed to be peeping from every damp location at Ijams.
The Plaza Pond was filled with the raucous voices of the ardent male calling to attract a mate.
The question is: How can such a little thing—roughly one inch long—make so much noise?
