Catch up time

Has it really been almost two months since the last blog post? And it's not because of a lack of noteworthy events. Yikes, time is flying. I'll try to get some catch up going today.
Spring began here on February 23; the criterion which determines this for me is the calling of the first peepers. Wayne heard them on that date down in the nearby KenGar wetlands.  But they have not been calling much since then, although there was a two day period when peepers, upland chorus frogs and wood frogs could all be heard together.
We'll probably be in the deep freeze for the rest of this week, so the next peeper choruses are at least a week off.
