Hearing a chorus of high-pitched chirps at night? You may be listening to the melodious sounds of spring peepers – small frogs about one inch in length. Male spring peepers make this sound to attract females during breeding season, which usually begins around mid-February and lasts through most of March. Although these amphibians are nocturnal and often hard to spot, they’re certainly easy to hear… their calls can be heard over a mile away!
