Spring Peepers Peeping

Saturday, March 8, 2013, is the date on which I first heard Spring Peepers on the W&OD this year.  Of course the temperature has been somewhat below normal, and their coming accordingly delayed.  So when they finally began singing after our abortive non blizzard on Thursday, they were immediately joined by what I am terming “Spring Cluckers,” because their lower-pitched calls sound just like a bunch of hens.  They’re some other kind of frog, surely.  If anybody knows what kind, let me know.  Usually the “Cluckers” begin about a week later than the Peepers.  The polyphony of a new season begins!
