: Hello,
: Can anyone tell me anything about this phrase? I am wondering what kind of bird they mean and the origin of the saying...

: "When peepers sing loud and long and late, the weather will cooperate."

: Thank you!

I'll look and see if I can find this one under weather-related sayings. One thing I am wondering about is whether "peepers" refers to birds or crickets.
