It happened last night

Recommended Posts

Happens every year about this time.  The frogs in the wetland across the street ALL started croaking last night.  After a couple of warm days, it's like somebody throws a switch.  It won't be long now. :P

We call those little guys "Peepers" here in MA and aside from the Bard Owls whooting in the spring those tree frogs singing is just music to my little bass fishing ears!

 

Thanks for restoring a little of my hope that in spite of 3 Nor'easters in less than two weeks Spring really will return.:frog-13:

Have to be sufficient to see Bluebirds and Robins in the yard.  Spring is not here but it is right around the corner.

Had a robin in the yard about a week ago.  One.  I think I saw him headed back towards NC.

When I was a kid I loved to listen to the frogs croaking after a big rain.  I would wake up in the middle of the night when there was a big storm.  When it was over I would listen to them through the open window until I fell asleep.

Frogs croaking are always my first sign that spring is actually getting close. Never understood the robin thing. They must never leave here because I see more of them during the winter hopping around on the snow than I do during the summer.

Spring is basically here along the gulf coast, TX. How I know:

 

1.) if the skeeters are biting, the fish are too!

2.) my baobab trees are sprouting

3.) the wild "field onions" are putting up flower stalks

4.) The black berry vines have grown their first green buds of the year

5.) the squirrels have returned with a vengeance

6.) it is regularly hitting 75-80* during the days

 

Yes sir... getting very close indeed! Hang in there all you frozen, icicle ridden fellows! Spring WILL return, and soon! If not, I give you permission to plunge me in an icy lake!

Old farmers thing here in Midwest. The frogs will come out and croak, and then cold snap. Repeat process 3 times, then spring is here. Sounds silly but it really does seem to work 😁

Same here. They came back in my area and probably turned around and went back after the last few Nor'easters.

Can't blame them - you guys have been getting hammered.

Still waiting to see our first Robin Red Breast.

There's been a pair that nests in a spruce right outside the kennel for a few years now.

I miss them.

Saw my first robin a week ago. He was frozen solid and laying on my porch. Too late for the poor lad but if I was smarter I'd take the hint and fly south and not return.

Robins (at least some of them) stay all year here in the Adirondacks, too.  You just don't see them hopping around in your yard after they give up their worm diet when the ground is frozen and covered in snow.  I often see them in the thick cedars when I'm grouse hunting in the winter months.  I've brought one home to prove it to a nay-sayer in the past.

 

Those little frogs --we call them "spring peepers" around here-- are a welcome sign of Spring.  Then come the black flies!  =:-0

 

Tight lines,

We get them all year long... some just stay here, others migrate from up north and winter here.  We get snow geese by the thousands too.

 

Saw a few wasps buzzing around yesterday in our 70° sunshine.  Haven't seen a robin yet, and that is unusual.  Snow is forecast overnight tonight.  Welcome to springtime in Colorado.

A saying around these parts is "When the dogwoods are blooming, bass are on the beds".   Still 4 to 6 weeks off or so.

Our forecasted low temps for Saturday and Sunday night are 5* and 6*.   After tonight, it's not supposed to get above freezing until next Thursday afternoon (after the next forecasted snowstorm!).

 

Maybe I should stop messing around with my bass stuff and get my ice fishing gear back out... :(

I know there were some caught on one at Kentucky Lake a couple weeks ago when I was there! Not by me unfortunately.

And it's ridiculous because there are guys who will welcome that forecast if it means they get to ice fish a little longer
