Thousands Of Singing Spring Peepers Are A Welcome Sound Of Normalcy Here In Kentucky

You’d probably agree that not many things seem normal right now in our state, however one thing that continues on, and even flourishes through these times, is nature. Spring in Kentucky has arrived, even with a worldwide pandemic and stay at home order, and we can all be thankful for the blooming plants, warmer sunshine, and emergence of many varieties of animals. One of the welcome sounds of normalcy throughout Kentucky in the springtime is the singing of Spring Peepers.
