The osprey hold their fish catch to streamline it under their bodies! All along highway #43 there are several osprey nests. It's not until the lake water melts that they return, more or less!
Spring PeepersThere were just a few last night, but my 5-year-old video plays the sound.
Yes, they are here, but they prefer to 'peep' in the dark, loudly, since I often work in my garden near their frog pond. The moment I spoke they became silent. I added their songs to my photos of peepers. First is the jelly-like mass in which they lay eggs. Slowly, they grow. You can see the tadpole clouds of 100s later on in the season. The tails disappear once their limbs grow. They are incredibly tiny but have large voices.
Spring Peepers Lanark is another video!
