Wild Facts: The grod that whistles

If you whistle for a dog to come, you'll know what a bird-voiced treefrog sounds like. Males call to attract females from May through September, emitting several high-pitched, bird-like whistles in a row. You're more likely to hear this nocturnal amphibian than you are to see it, since it is small, well camouflaged and only descends from trees to breed. If you do catch a glimpse, the bird-voiced treefrog looks like a miniature gray treefrog but without the yellow inner thigh color. Both bird-voiced and gray treefrogs have a light spot under each eye and body colors that ...

A great deal of time, space and attention go to what we can expect from the candidates - on their policy stances, their strengths and weaknesses, their frame of mind at any given moment. Given that voters are called upon to judge these politicians' fitness for the highest office in the land, this is understandable.

Pigeon release was apparently successful

Bird released: On Aug. 1, my brother encouraged me to release a pigeon I'd been caring for and advised me to stay close to see what happened. At first, the pigeon walked around on my deck for a while, then flew up on the railing. Then she flew up and sat on my windowsill. I walked down the steps to go get my newspaper and the pigeon flew down to my driveway and walked out to the paper box with me. She walked all the way back, then flew back up on my deck. I sat out there for ...

Water, water everywhere...

Water, water everywhere or so it seems when we have these daily thunderstorms. We have been one of the fortunate areas in the state in the last year. Although it has been dry, we have not been under the severe drought restrictions that North Georgia has experienced. But we cannot afford to take water for granted. It is our most precious resource. Yes, it is even more precious than that foreign oil that we seem to be so dependent on.
