Our house is situated on nearly five acres in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey (Jersey Devil country!). Our yard consists of pitch pines, scrub oaks, laurel, huckleberry and wild blueberry bushes – and is home to many interesting little creatures. This fine fellow is known as a Spring Peeper (Hyla crucifer). You can see the characteristic X on his back. DH took this photo a couple of evenings ago. One of the benefits of living in the woods is falling asleep to the comforting choruses of frogs.
