Wondering about the sound of frogs.

Last night, the evening of January ninth, after we had all that rain, the frogs were singing so loud that is all you could hear when you went outside and they are still singing loudly this morning.  We have been on the dry side most of the summer, fall, and so far this winter, so I imagine the frogs were really happy last night and wanted everyone else to know about it.  There was almost a complete chorus.  The only thing missing was the bass section.  It seems that either the bull frogs are still sleeping or they didn't survive the summer.  I am hopefull that they are still sleeping under the mud and will awaken when it gets warmer and when there is more insects around to feast upon.

Speaking of insects, they are rather slim this time of year so how do the mid to small size frogs find sufficient sustanance?  Nature does usually take care her own, so I am sure she has provided something for them to eat.  What ever, the frogs sure did sound happy last night.  Maybe they think winter is over.  Of course, we usually get our worst winter weather around the end of this month or the beginning of next.  So far, this has been one of the colder winters we have had for awhile but not the coldest; at least not yet.  Now when you all go to bed tonight, close your eyes and remember what those Spring time frogs sound like and have a great day, you hear?


  1. If'n I had to sleep with frogs at night, I'm think'n I would move to a new campground. Now if them frogs were all sing'n the same song and all in tune......well, who knows?

  2. I love those sounds,,,lol. I haven't asked in a long time, but,,, how is the swamp looking?

  3. BB, so far they seem to be singing the same tune. They haven't let up, still singing today. That is strange, they usually don't sing all day.

    Trouble, I love them, too. Don't know about the swamp, need to take a walk and check it out. Think I will wait until it dries out a bit.
