I did some more listening last night and heard wood frogs as well. It's like somebody flipped the switch on over here.

Croaking frogs and my taste switching to Pale Ale. Spring is here for sure!:)

We have had Bluebirds checking out the net boxes last couple of days.

We are in the flight path of the Sandhill cranes going to the nesting area in Walkerville about 3 or 4 miles North of us (as the Crane flies). They have been coming over in large formations for about a week or so. Some of the formations are up so high you can hardly see them but they sound like they are about tree top high.

Saw my first Loon of the year yesterday also.

Sounds like you guys are alot more "spring" than us up here, but the tell-tale signs are showing every day.

On Saturday I saw a guy icefishing (with shanty) out in the middle of Lake Margrethe, but during the weekend I also saw robins, sandhill cranes, and my son chased a frog down by our creek. I even heard a phoebe (which blows me away...there are no bugs for it to catch yet). The gobblers have been waking me up every morning for a month now, so thats nothing new...but is another sure sign of spring. An awesome time of year!


Cant wait for the morels...the sign of spring which tastes great, too!
