Spring Peep­ers

Wild - - HINTERLAND WHO’S WHO -

In early spring, male Spring Peep­ers gather near wet­lands and use their pipes to at­tract mates. While these frogs might be small, they can make quite a lot of noise. The louder they call, the more likely they’ll at­tract a mate. Each frog makes ap­prox­i­mately 20 peeps per minute. Some of them even work to­gether, singing in cho­rus — the bari­tone of the crew kick­ing the song off.
