Thousands Of Singing Spring Peepers Are A Welcome Sound Of Normalcy Here In Vermont
Spring is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation, and as days get longer and afternoons warmer, spring nestles in to cheer us all up after a long winter. Many signs of spring inform us of the coming season like the birds singing and the crocuses blooming. But one tell-tale sign that spring is here comes from the smallest frog in Vermont: the spring peeper. After a frozen winter, the spring peepers reawaken and start to sing their sweet tunes, triumphing over winter and sharing their success with all of us.

This winter and spring have been challenging times for our communities. Normalcy seems to be a forgotten word, destined to remain in the past. But, in all the uncertainty and strangeness of this time, the spring peepers remind us of hope and bring us closer to normalcy this spring.
