Found a whole bunch of these guys in the lake.
Recent metamorph found by the water's edge.
Spring Peepers, possibly first of year (foy) 2016, but at minimum first documented by me this year (2016) at Belle View Elementary School -- at the site of the Wetland Restoration next to West Grove Park near Dyke Marsh. Calling was intermittent. It was 61 degrees, no precipitation, light wind (BF) at 10pm, March 1, 2016. (Auto noise on Fort Hunt Road).
Recorded with Fostex FR-2, Sennheiser ME-62, Telinga Parabolic Dish. Edited in Audacity for fade in/out only.
