We had been a little puzzled the other day, as we didn’t see many frog eggs down in the ponds. I, personally, suspected the three wood ducks that have been hanging around (note to Jamie: they came back after the chainsaw yesterday, I presume they will come back after walking past on the way to get in some practice today)
Well, I don’t know where those eggs were yesterday…but my goodness there are a lot in the little ponds today! Hopefully, the water levels will stay up in those areas, because there aren’t many eggs in the main pond (I still suspect the ducks). However, those little ponds do behave like vernal pools, so the race is on! The main pond, being spring feed and impounded, does not dry out. Or at least, in my opinion, since it didn’t last year, it won’t this year.
