Spring peepers make themselves heard
Post date: Apr 27, 2009 2:47:33 PM
Now that the weather has turned warmer, a chorus of spring peepers can be heard in the Roslindale Wetlands in the evening. Spring peepers are small nocturnal tree frogs (Latin name pseudacris crucifer) that make their homes in wooded areas and swamps. Take a stroll after dinner and hear them for yourself!
