Spring Peepers

Although the beginning of last week was barely above 40 degrees here, the end of the week (and today) it’s been much more like 80 degrees !

Starting last Friday when it got much warmer there was a lot of noise from the wildlife in our garden, the surrounding homes and nearby Middlesex Fells. At first I thought it sounded a lot like Cicada’s which I’m used to hearing in California, but in fact the noise is frogs. Known locally a Spring Peepers but more formally as Pseudacris crucifer they make quite a racket and keep it going for most of the night (I’ve not yet waited up so late as to see when they might stop – but they’re usually still going at midnight).

    Perhaps the frogs have been lamenting the loss of their favourite tree? I guess you’ll have to think twice before building that treehouse for Sylvie and Iain now…
