Signs of spring: frogs calling!

Although you can't see them, you can certainly hear them!   And on 3/15/19, there was a solid showing of wood frogs: 3 egg  masses. Sounds like more to come. This is from a pond near where Bel Pre Creek flows into the Northwest Branch.  Sound file courtesy of our master stream monitor, Glenn Welch.
