Wood Ducks 2
I thought five o’clock would be early enough but they arrived before me and I spooked them getting to the blind. The next morning I knew I would have to be earlier. Karla suggested that I sleep in the blind. I thought about that but the spring peepers are so loud that I knew I wouldn’t get much sleep. Karla, Adam and I walked down to the pond after dark and the sound actually hurt your ears. The sounds coming from the spring peeper’s exceptionally large vocal sacs are deafening. You could feel the vibrations in your ears. It is hard to believe the sound comes from a thumb-nail size chorus frog.
