Listen to the Frogs

I suppose a person could use the pick up line, “Do you want to go listen for frogs tonight?” I bet it is a seldom used line and it might actually work if the person you are asking likes frogs.  If you like frogs and live in Minnesota then you might want to check out the opportunity to listen for frogs. It won’t be long and we’ll be hearing the spring peepers singing in the swamps.

Minnesota Frog and Toad Calling Survey
