    Anyone know what that noise is coming from behind the new section of Claiborne? Starts at around 5PM through the night..Sounds like a million birds or bats making a high pitched noise...

    We've heard them too --- it's crazy!! Can even hear them from inside the house when we're going to bed.

    I love that sound. It's one of the first signs of spring.

    We've heard the owl too! Really gets the dogs going. I hope they stick around with all the construction.....but eventually I see the frogs and the owls leaving us..

    I had a falcon or maybe it was a hawk sitting on my deck. I've seen deer, toads, frogs, fat little ground hog or something like that, chipmonks, red fox all in Broadlands. Lots of wild life which is awesome.

    Don't forget the bunnies! Hard to forget them with all they leave behind...and all they eat? Some of our landscaping disappeared.

    true story

    saw a bunny in the back yard so I called the kids over to the window to see it. Just as they stared to go "awwwww", a hawk swoops down and the bunny is no more. So, a lecture about nature followed....

    Ah, spring peepers...they peep all night...doesn't the hoa have a policy about peeping sounds after 10PM? : ) they sounded like the secada's, I hated those things and thought they were coming back...we've got wetlands behind our house, so we've got the bunnies, the owl, some birds...just didn't want to have whatever was making that noise swoop down on me while in my hot tub, lol...

    The peeper cry is the spiritual whinning of lost hockey fans. The mourning of a lost season. The cries for the future. There is no regulation against that.

    Hockey fans don't cry, they just get drunk and knock each other's teeth down their throats.

    There is nothing more beautiful than a father teaching his daughters how to throw hip checks. As they say, the family that checks together stays together!
