I heard peepers west of Erin when i was riding my horse on Thursday.  There have been Killdeers for at least two weeks in southwest Caledon in some open fields.  Waiting for my first Meadowlark.  Lots of Song Sparrows around.


Axeman, spring is coming!!!

I feel like I owe everyone an apology....sigh....Sunday's snow storm was my fault....I'm sorry. Last week I changed out the tires on our vehicles and took out my driveway markers.

Peepers in Port Colborne today around 1:30 pm and then some more along a back road in Stoney Creek on my way home. I was heading North on 11th road East just before it becomes Fifty rd.
Re: "Snow tires" I've only changed out one of our vehicles winter tires for the same reason. Was it two years ago we received 12 inches of chopped ice in the the middle of April. I did drain the gas from my Snowblower and then ran it until it quit.

Is it just me or was that a really short spring peeper season? It seems they never came back after that cold snap. Oh well...into the Ruffed grouse chest beating season.
