For Frogs---not such a Banner Year so far

Last year was the best year for frogs that I have ever seen here in this area of Indiana. With a lot of rain and fallen trees, there were frogs in places where they are seldom seen, protected because vehicles couldn't travel where the frogs were.

This year has been quite dry---little snow this winter and a warm, sunny, and balmy spring hasn't provided the shelter, floods, and food that bring on an over abundance of beings that need wetlands to survive and thrive.

So there are less frogs and tadpoles this year. You can still spot a few adults. The pools and puddles still have a few tads, but not that many.
