Sounds of Spring and Temperatures of Summer

I can't believe what I heard outside this evening....Peepers. The small frog that makes music to sleep by during the warm Spring and Summer months. I can't remember hearing them much before May. I am not sure if anyone else remembers hearing them this soon.
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.
While working down at Cedar Run near the Creek I saw several people enjoying the summer temperatures canoeing down the creek. I wanted stopped my work to join in the fun. If you want to hear one click here Mountain girl Paula logging out and enjoying the warm weather.

Awesome Blog you have here. I live in Sabinsville and was scanning the map and saw leetonia way out in the middle of no where. So I googled the name out of curiosity and your blog popped up! Awesome
