Wood Ducks 001
I spent another beautiful morning in the wood duck blind. Using a headlamp to find my way, I crawled into the blind at 4:30 a.m. The sound from the frogs and spring peepers was deafening. I can’t believe something that small can make that much noise and to think that they were frozen just a month ago. Several frog varieties spend the winter under the leaf litter on the forest floor. They have a chemical in their bodies that allows them to freeze. Their heart even stops beating. Come spring they thaw out and hop back into the pond and start singing. We live in an amazing world.
