We were rained out yesterday at Turkey Creek but had better luck today (Oct 4), although it was dark and dreary --- didn't  rain until 11:30 AM.  The pinewoods and fields were quite active but the hammock was birdless.  Most of the hammock was under water and now filled with hundreds of calling frogs (sounded like thousands, deafening).
