I keep finding out that I live in a place people travel to see. Of course there are all those pretty stone monuments and buildings downtown, but out here in the burbs, people travel from far and wide to see and hear the birds, turtles, and frogs. Really the frogs? I had no idea, the parking lot was dotted with out of state license plates, apparently there is a network of frog spotters and listeners, who share where the cacophony and spotting is best this week, and off they go for the weekend.
I have to think what would I travel to see, a meadow of sheep, a flock of majestic flightless waterfowl, wolves, bears (two or four footed,) the sea crashing on the rocks, ships, airplanes, desert, dessert, Not frogs.
Not frogs for me either. Yuck. In the summer, at night it's all you hear. The frogs of some sort croaking over by the stream.ReplyDelete
So it is not the houseboys over by the stream making noise?Delete
I knew Maddie would jump right in on this one given his “love” for frogs. No, I wouldn’t travel to see frogs either, although I do enjoy discovering them locally.ReplyDelete
I have heard of plane spotters and train spotters, the Owls drew a crowd last yearDelete
Maybe not travel to see them, but if nearby... I like frogs and many species are under threat here.ReplyDelete
Huntley Meadows is a massive success story of creating habitat, it was a military site for WWII, and used for crash testing cars after that.Delete
I guess frogs have more fans than we suspect.ReplyDelete
Yes, who knewDelete
It proves there's something for everyone!!!ReplyDelete
I'll pass on the frogs, though.
We already found our princesDelete
I'm fond of frogs, so long as I don't have to handle them.ReplyDelete
The last one I touched was in the 8th grade, in a trayDelete
I tried recording the sound, really didn't capture well on my cameraDelete
LOL, I don't think I would either.ReplyDelete
But I do need to come back to PhoenixDelete
