Spring Peepers Sleep © features the peaceful and relaxing night sounds from a calm and quiet spring night. Beginning at dusk the spring peepers start calling from shallow ponds. It is one of the earliest sounds of spring. In the evening, soon after the peepers begin, american toads start their trilling, adding their voices to the symphony. Their trills are constantly changing, weaving a constantly evolving harmony that is always progressing into another cadence.
Spring Peepers Sleep © was recorded on a calm quiet night without the sounds of wind or running water. Stars twinkle in the pond, an occasional water swirl is heard as a frog moves in the water. Mist forms. And wow do those Peepers peep! It is that magical time of year when ferns are unfolding, buds are popping, every twig is showing life, and the weather is warmer.
