Fauna Friday

Spring is inching closer and the birds and frogs are singing up a storm around here.
A beautiful bright red cardinal was singing his little head off in our backyard yesterday.
You might need to turn up the volume, I filmed this from inside the house with no doors or windows open - he was pretty loud, though!

Frogs are laying their eggs now.
This cluster was spotted near the Little Pigeon River in Great Smoky Mtns National Park. Frogs will often lay their eggs in abandoned hog wallows such as this, which collect and hold water after a rain.
