Dry Season Observations

Backyard during the dry season. I want to document a few changes I observed during this dry season compared with ones in the past. The first thing I noticed was a huge decrease of cicadas. Normally, when the day heats up around 8 a.m., the cicadas begin singing very loud. In years past it was so loud it would drown out other noises and humans would have to raise their voices to be heard. This year it has been very quiet. There were some noise making insects, but not nearly the numbers as prior years. Dead toad in the Rio Viejo. I noticed a reduction in another noise, that being amphibians singing in the river at night. In years past the toads and frogs would sing up a storm. I would listen to different groups in various parts of the river. This year there were fewer singing amphibians. I also saw less eggs in the river. And, I saw more adult toads that had been skillfully eaten through their toxic skin. I also noticed less algae like plants in the river. Dead and very dried out frog. T
