We had familial and metabolic constraints today, and couldn't do a full
night's survey, so we just listened at some sites between Kemptville and
Bishops. Chorus Frogs were at the expected sites, and in expected
numbers, with Wood Frogs and Peepers either in big choruses or not yet
calling. Everything was dry, of course, and one Toad was seen on
Somerville Road but no Leopard Frogs anywhere.

It's going to be very interesting to see how the Leopard Frogs move and
how the choruses of all species assemble in the forecast dry warm week.

Here in the Niagara region, not only are chorus frogs and peepers very active, but leopard frogs were also heard calling, and I think I heard some toads calling.

There's a whole loud chorus of peeps coming from the frog pond and
over the hill from the laneway pond.

Since it's to be above freezing tonight I set up the blacklight at the
window by the balcony, and there are a surprising amount of moths out
there. So far using iNaturalist I have Gray Quaker, Major Sallow,
Grote's sallow, and Genus Phigalia and Agonopterix. There are a
couple more I'll download and check on tomorrow. Supposed to be
warmer nights coming up the next few days, everything's springing into

Wood frogs were calling from my pond at 2pm on Sunday.
Yesterday when I was walking down the lane to check the mail many small leopard frogs were leaping into the creek.
