The credit to the photographs made during spring goes to the singing wildlife in the wetlands. The music around the wetlands is near deafening. All spring songs are composed to perfection. The spring peepers in rhythm, the air pump base of the American bittern is deep and throaty, the Sandhill cranes call coarse and raspy, an occasional clap of thunder causing the wild turkey to shock gobble, in the fare distance the drumming of the ruffed grouse, overhead the whisper of the woodcock. The annual live spring performance in the Wood county wildlife area is purely unequalled.
