There are no signs of amphibians in or around my place.  It snowed last night so the ground is covered in about two or three inches of icy snow.  There are a few purple flowers poking up, resiliently through the snow.  A sugar maple sapling has some buds on it.  The nearest edge is a forest clearing at the walking trail near my site.  The edge effect there is the juxtaposition of the natural habitat and community of wildlife meshing with the recreating humans and pets that traverse through the area.  I do not think my place provides habitat for any forest interior species because the forest at my spot is not very mature or diverse.
