Went to the arboretum today to have a look before everything everything starts greening and blooming. The spring peepers were very loud! You’d think you could see something that makes that much noise, but I’ve never seen a peeper except in pictures. The first video is in the deeper part of the pond, the second is the one where they were almost deafening.
