Peepers about

A spring peeper, Pseudocris crucifer, has been spotted. It was almost raked up with some leaves but jumped out of the way. They are not calling yet, but it’s been disturbingly warm. Should be 83° tomorrow. But they are out.

As a note, the species epithet crucifer refers to the large X across the back. And now you know.
