One of the more common frogs in this area is the northern chorus frog. These little frogs are very small – only about an inch and a half high when sitting – and prefer temporary spring ponds that are very shallow.
They are sometimes referred to as spring peepers, but this is a misnomer. The spring peeper is a different kind of frog that is a tree frog and usually peeps singly up in a tree.
The chorus frog is well named for there is usually a large chorus of them all singing together “cre-ee-k, cre-ee-k, cre-ee-k in a shallow grassy puddle.
