Nice photos, I personally like the female red-winged balckbirds over the males. And your not sure, i'm pretty ssure it is a song sparrow.

Thanks to all.

Sadly,I saw the first few apple blossom petals begin to fall in the wind yesterday. Like a 15 year old Lab,I have to make the most of the time they are here because soon they will be gone. Usually,the Cedar Waxwings show up to chew on them about this time-sure hope they do. Next? why,apples of course! followed by the perennial ritual of bumping the trunk with the front wheel of the riding mower and having a nice 3/4 pounder land on my head. You know,I don't remember the beauty and birds the apple tree provides when I'm hit on the head with one or more apples. Nope,I threaten to fire up the Stihl Rancher and produce a stump. Why is that? Gotta work on that. I get the same mad,irritated look as this guy........

You nailed that white crowned sparrow image, love how the contrasty crown really shows well in the overall scheme of the image. The mystery sparrow is definately a song sparrow, I like it's cocked tail.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
