FROGS. Fully two months early, we've been hearing large numbers of 
Pacific tree frogs in our area (Sonoma Valley - inland and 45 miles 
N. of San Francisco). Even before the first rains yesterday and 
humdity as low as 15% last week, there were fairly good numbers to be 
heard. Last night after about an inch of rain, the little tykes were 
all over our country roads hopping from side to side. This has not 
happened before mid-December in the 13 years we've been here.

RECORDERS. Everyone on the list needs to keep in mind that given the 
terrific advances in digital audio technology, recorders, even at the 
low end of the cost scale, are often nearly as good as those at the 
high end. The gap is rapidly closing. Depending on mic and pre-amp 
systems, many folks would be very hard pressed, indeed, to tell the 
difference between recordings made on a Nagra or 722 and those on 
some Hi MDs.
