Good Morning , yuk what a stormy day 😦 and after such a beautiful weekend.
Today I am introducing you to Freddy the frog.( could be Fredrika but I like calling him that ) He arrived at my pond 2 years ago and since I love frogs my excitement just grew. I wanted to do anything I could to make him stay, so I cleaned the pond for him …….note don’t do that. I did not realize until to late that he just sat there and watched me remove all the eggs. So last year much to my surprise the eggs were back at we had polliwogs 🙂 I will warn you that the voice on these frogs is very loud and they stutter lol its like and old car thats enging just won’t turn over…anyway it is very fun and it seems that most of them stayed which is wonderful and noisy at the same time. I love it.
A lot needs to be done in the early Spring, time to clean the feeders (1 part bleach to 10 parts water ) is a great way to clean your stuff, just remember to rinse it really well and fully dry before you fill it up. This helps with mold and bacteria that buildup, and always wear gloves when handling your feeders, we can give stuff to them as much as they can back to us.
Woody and Momma are coming in often, I have been testing areas with my GoPro to bring in some great video to share. But right now they are showing signs of nesting very close and it would seem to me the babies must have already hatched as they are feeding up a storm
