VIDEO: Peepers Can Make You Go Deaf

Last night, we tried to capture the painful volume of the peepers in this video. It doesn't work. If you turn your volume up all the way you will begin to understand how the peeps, which I actually love and look forward to each spring, hurt your head. In real life, the sound begins to echo inside your skull. In real life, you cannot talk on the phone or to each other if you are inside the house and the windows are open. Outside, you cannot talk at all. The sound is huge. There is reverberation. It is as if the air itself is a tangible sound wave that you can feel on your skin. You have to come here and experience it in order to understand it.



  1. I LOVE Peepers, and I completely know what you mean. Often on my walks, I've been about deafened by Peepers. Oh, Cicadas do the same thing.

  2. Hi, Misty. I'm glad I don't have to cope with deafening cicadas, too. Peepers are quite enough! Thank you for dropping in.
