The Spring Peepers are awake. Those ear-piercing peeps emanating from your local pond, marsh or flooded drainage ditch are coming from these guys. You can hear them up to a half mile away, and not just in the sticks of Western Cranston. The fringes of Blackamore Pond, the reedy areas on the south end of Magnolia Street in Auburn, the flooded flats of the Pawtuxet - right next door.
