Wood frog calls

I don't think I've ever been happier to see rain in March than I was this weekend.  After our cold, wet winter, a week of sunny days in the fifties and sixties was irresistable and it took the rain to remind me that working from dawn until dark every day requires intermittent days of rest.

The frogs were happy to see wet weather reappear as well.  Spring Peepers and Chorus Frogs were joined by dozens of Wood Frogs (captured in the embedded video) by Friday night.  Ever since the first spring when I hunted them down by flashlight, I've had a very soft spot in my heart for Wood Frogs --- hopefully you'll see the appeal too.

Want your chickens to be as happy as our frogs?  Give them an automatic chicken waterer and they'll amuse themselves for hours.
