Got 2 of these(Spring Peeper) from a friend today. They are a great little frog. Although very common, and always heard, rarely seen in the wild. Let's just hope one is NOT male

Nice, I love looking for them in the spring. You are right about hoping you got a female, they are quite loud for little frogs!

I always trace thier call to the point of origin, but rarely discover them. The only time I see them in nature is under loose bark on fallen logs next to water/boggy areas, or as tadpoles. My friend installed a pond last year. He counted 21 juvs on his back screen door.

There is a special place that I love to go to find them...Here is some of the pictures that I took.

Love the peepers! One of my favorites! Hope you got a female

Yea I understand, they are really tough to actually see sometime!
When it's peak breeding season, they are pretty bold about calling and usually you can literally get within a foot of them if you are patient and slow. Sometimes you have to be this close to spot them! One evening I went down to a stream with an open boggy area filled with short plants that had very open, broad leaves. As soon as it got dark, the males all came out and sat right on top of these leaves out in the open. I easily saw/ caught about 25 males and females. I think they are only that easy to find for a short time at the height of breeding season, otherwise they can be quite elusive for such loud frogs!

I have a single male and his call isn't bad. I can hear it about 15 feet away and it's actually pretty cool. Makes me feel like I'm sitting outside.
