Then there are some that think that climate doesn't stay exactly the same
but changes.

Back to fish-
I have several sunfish nesting outside despite the cool rain drenching
weather. So far the most exciting nest is that of a blackbanded sunfish.
Such a cute nest compared to dollar sunfish with their huge sand flung
nests, it looks like a neat little 1/4 cup depression. There is also a nest
like structure that I find a mud sunfish near everytime I come up to the
pond, but cannot prove it is his. This is the most exciting nest. The
bantam sunfish has also dug a few test pits, which are more neat and small,
but not as much as the blackbandeds. Someone has cleared a space out under a
piece of driftwood. I am not sure what it is. Plenty of killifish spawning
activity as well.

Another great development. I have moved all my ponds over the past year
together in the same area. Just in time for a mass Grays ( and maybe Copes)
treefrog breeding. When I first moved here in 97 there might be two or three
calling in my yard, and a few around the neighborhood. This year there was
atleast two dozen heard calling last night. Odds are my ponds have improved
breeding in this area. I don't know if it annoys the neighbors, but they
can thank me in reduced pest insects. Here you can here the
sound of a Grays ( Greys) tree frog. Go down the page to the correct frog
and click the sound. This file has peepers too. It is the best one I could
find. I have a better site, but it's server must be having problems.
