Spring Peepers

If you're a frog, this is prime real estate, baby.  Stagnant water, rotting vegetation - the perfect place to dine on bugs, romance a few hundred of your fellow frogs, and raise your tadpoles.
Flooded lowlands are common around here; this one is just down the road, a couple of acres of marshy wetland.  Home sweet home for spring peepers.  Forget daffodils and crocuses.  This nighttime chorus is the true sign that spring is here. 

Blogger makes it difficult to embed an audio file, so just play the video and turn on your speakers.
