Peepers say spring is here

Posted on Nov 11, 2014

I heard some signs of spring today, November 11, coming from the forest! That was a rather quick winter season, wasn’t it? There were Spring Peepers (Pseudacris crucifer) calling from the woodlands optimistically thinking we may be on the way to warmth. This photo shows a Spring Peeper tadpole starting to metamorph into a miniature froglet that Twan photographed for the Meet Your Neighbours global diversity project.
