Night sounds


I have been outside for awhile. Part of my evening ritual. I like to go outside, take a long slow draught of the evening, and pee.

It is a gorgeous, soft spring night. No biting insects out yet! Totally engulfed in fog. I can hear
Spring Peepers (Pseudacris crucifer), Wood frogs (Rana sylvatica), several American Woodcock (Scolopax minor) and a lone Barred owl (Strix varia) calling.

What a night. If I didn’t have work I would consider sleeping outside or at least going off to the ponds and vernal pools that the froggies are calling from and have a looksee.

Good night, all.
