Gerald, does the Elk calling for a mate do anything for you ? Or is that just the sheep ? I'm sorry, had to ask.

I hear tons of Tree frogs and crickets. Wild turkeys at times and the guy about a 1/4 mile from me cows. They go nuts when a storm is approaching.

I've been hearing at night a new sound that I've never heard before, it's some kind of critter, just no idea what it is.

Day time I hear my buddy the Red Tailed hawk, he's been hunting the woods behind my house for years. It's fun to watch him grabbing baby squirrels and rabbits.

The greatest sound in the world.....
IT'S RAINING

It finally rained here, I think we easily got an inch or more this am. We really haven't had any rain for about 3 months, The birds left in July so it has been really quiet around here.

Glad to hear, but I had no idea so many places were still so dry. Been a tough year. Maybe your birds will return now.

Mostly heard rain and engine noise here today too. Went for a road trip was supposed to be a color tour but the colors were mostly on the ground. A flock of Sand hill cranes flew over and said howdy when we got home. One day last week I came home after work, grabbed a beer, went out front with the dog, sat on the deck stepsand heard.......nothing, AHHHH.

todays pic one of many

Uh Yeah Daniel it's dry. My dad lives about 3 miles away along Cherry Creek. I told him not to bother going to see if the creek was up after we got 3 inches of rain this weekend. I have cracks out in the field as big as cherry creek and they have to fill up before the water can get down to his place. The Weather service said on the radio this morning we would need 6 more rains that big this month to get subsoil moisture back to normal.Hope we get it before the Big Freeze or the frost will go deep and there will be waterlines frozen and we plant then 42" down here in Iowa.

Oh I forgot in my original post, when they are running races at Iowa Speedway(5 miles away) I can hear the drone of racing engines.

Not exactly on topic, but one morning my wife and I were spending the night out in our boat on a local lake. As you might expect, it was a quiet night, with frogs, birds, and the gentle slapping of water against the hull........until about 5 am. That is when all the local bass fisherman launched their boats and came speeding by, over and over, ten or more. The gentle slapping became violent rocking, the engines whined and moaned until I thought I'd anchored at a local speedway. We never anchored in that spot again!

The rain Saturday evening was great stuff to hear. The ground cracks are close to healing over. That 1.5 -2" of rain helped a lot. They had flash flood warnings posted, but that was just for street flooding. No standing water the next morning around here!

While I was not sleeping a wink last night i listened to the new kitten meow, my wife snore, my son making all sorts of interesting noises in his sleep, pouring rain, and the roosters crowing. I can't wait till all but one of those things are on the dinner plate. One rooster crowing is a nice sound. 6 crowing is an argument.

At home, I hear birds singing, squirrels chattering, sirens blowing, horns honking and sometimes only the wind.

Tomorrow I'll be at camp and will hear the loons calling, geese honking and the wind blowing on a beautiful day.

Thanks for reminding me about the loons Will.
