From an intrepid gardener:
“Don’t know how many of you have noticed, but those squeaky wheel sounds coming from the garden
after dark will not be fixed with an oil can.
That is our own native spring peepers….there are several quite tuneful sopranos … They seem to be
mostly located in or around the plant filled pond across from Bob’s ‘greenhouse’ area. Ah what a delight
it is…..they seemed to be thriving in the [area] that has lots of plant material growing in the pond.
So, if you want some male peepers ….singing from your pond, add some plant material. Warm wet
spring nights are their favorites.”
