Sounds of Spring

Linking up with Skywatch Friday 

Good Times are here, the Orioles won their opening day game against the Boston Red Sox. Our temps have been in the 60's, it is starting to feel more like spring. Finally!
Besides hearing the birds in Spring, my yard comes alive with frog sounds.. Sometimes it can be so loud, I love it. I made a youtube video listening to the frogs while watching the crescent moon.




The crescent moon taken on 4/1/14




My froggy sounds on youtube, sorry my hubby came along and made some noise with the trash can.


A shot of just one of the Great Blue Herons on the nest.


This shot above show more of the nest that the Heron is standing on..


It maybe a pretty colorful sky later, the sun is setting.


 Thank you for visiting my post! I hope you enjoyed...the sounds of spring..I hope to see you on Saturday sharing your critters..

Thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

  11. We have a small koi pond in our backyard and this time of year it's full of frogs. And they give us a nightly symphony of croaking. I don't mind though - it's a sign that spring is here. Glad you are getting some warmer temps!

  21. Thanks again for sharing nature's beauty with us. Your crescent moon is excellent. It shows that you don't live in the north of your country. Our crescent moon is more vertical than yours.
    Have a great weekend.

    I love the sound of frogs too, but to hear them sing so loud in the garden would be just a little too much, I think. :-)
