Thanks for the article. This is the scariest ecological news I've heard. I've read many similar articles in the last 3 years. I also live in an area where there should be frogs and aren't any. There aren't any crayfish anymore either, for what it's worth.

Yup and I haven't heard any alligators this spring either. Usually the frog noise cuts out when the alligator starts calling. It's almost May and it's too quiet.

That really makes me cry, because I live not far from that guy, and spring peepers have always been one of my all-time favorite symphonies I have noticed that their sound has gotten more quiet and harder to find in the last few springs - this year I've barely heard them.

That's sad. Should be a wake up call..But, in our fear ran society people are so used to being made afraid, that this probably won't even phase them.

We live in an area where there is/was a rookery for thousands of birds. This year, after the birds had already built their nests, overnight they disappeared. No one seems to know why, except that it's probably a combination of factors.
