Peeper Night 2022: March 18, 2022

We have a pond here full of these little frogs people call peepers. They “peep” in the spring. The peeping can actually be quite loud. If you stand at the edge of the wetlands or the pond when they start in the evening, the noise can hurt your ears.

In the winter, they bury themselves down in the mud, deep under there somewhere. When it’s been warm for a while, one male frog comes out and starts singing his mating song. The other males don’t want to be left out, so they all come out and sing too. That’s why they peep: the males are trying to attract females.

When one male comes out, they all come out. So, one night sometime in March or April, it’s quiet. The next night, it’s loud. It’s like turning on the light: boom, there they are. So, I have been writing down the date of this marker of spring for a few years.
