It’s Early

Willamette Valley

4.25.2012

Coming into the end of April, amphibians have plenty of water. It hasn’t been the wettest of winters in NW Oregon but there is plenty of healthy habitat for now. Some egg laying was observed in early April (some in March as well but there was a couple killing frosts, even snow, in March).

Lots of peeping, croaking all around the town- wherever there is a seasonal or year-round wetland. Froggies lookin’ for love.

It’s still too early to tell how the marginal habitats will fare. More frogs will be coming.

Don’t tease the frog
