The temperatures have been as high as 80 during the day and staying above freezing at night has taken all the ice and snow off the mountain. The animals are singing sounds of Spring and to the woe of many turkey hunters the Turkeys are mating very early. I expect some even going to nest soon. The Turkey Vultures have returned along with the robins, blue Jays and geese. The porcupines are moving around a lot as well. So keeping an eye on my quill collector dog Leo is now a must.
