Woodcocks have started peenting in the St Louis area and plan to go listen/look for them soon.  In other years as early as February when I've been out, I have usually heard spring peeper type calls from other fields at twilight along with the woodcock peenting and descending notes as they come back down from their display flights.  I just assumed that they were spring peepers.   We have recently had days above freezing.


2 hrs towards the equator from the observations, but I swore I heard a frog calling yesterday, but dismissed it as a tad too cold/early.  But we did have a couple days of 50 degrees this weekend, maybe they have arisen from winter slumbers.
