Sounds like you were a cool kid. What a neat thing to do.

I think hearing spring peepers would lull you to sleep! I open my windows even if it is chilly so that I can hear them from the wetlands behind my bay. *grinning*

Benji,
Great link!!! Check out the Science and Nature category for more wildlife sound samples.

We have foxes in our woods, and I've heard occasional yips, yowl and barks from them.

Here are a few other interesting critter sounds from the sound board web site under the science and nature category:

Coyote Sounds

Bobcat Sounds

Cricket Sounds


Cougar/Mountain Lion Sounds

Deer Sounds

Raccoon Sounds

Squirrel Sounds

Bear Sounds

Grasshopper Sounds

Wolf Sounds

I would think so/hope so...but after reading your earlier comments "...the sounds made my ears ring!" and "...trying to talk over the chorus!!" had me wondering. <grinning back>

Looks like some great links, BooBooBearBecky. I'm gonna have to wait until tomorrow to check them out, though. I'm going to bed *early* for a change. I'm exhausted!

I'll be falling asleep to silence--that took some getting used to. Normally I sleep to a fan droning, but I weaned myself from it this winter--finally.

Nice one becky.

Raccoons sound like someone doing a bad impression of... something else.

Pumas sound like The Predator. Which is always a good thing.

Thanks for all of the individual links, 4B. I went quickly through them because our cat Bekka seemed a little unsure of what was going on. When I got to the last wolf howling, she took off into the kitchen. By the time I did the last one she growled and took off up the steps. I tried reassuring her, but I'm still waiting for her to come back down. Maybe some birdsongs would help.

Her sister, Meeka, on the other hand is still resting on a chair with a slightly puzzled look, but that could be due to her sister's behavior.

The bird song did bring her back down, but after a while I think it got to her too, and she went back upstairs.

I thought I'd share the link I found: Learn Bird Songs

My pups ears were standing pretty tall when she heard the wolf howl even though she's NEVER heard one before.
THANKS for the link! I'll be showing the grandson in the near future. He'll love it.

My favorite night sound would be the mating call of the toads.
A few owls have let loose above me while walking about in the dark at camp.
WOW do they ever startle you when least expected!
