Fuzzballs!

4 posts in this topic

Our first brood of wood ducks appeared this week. Five little fuzzballs with mama woodie. There is another hen nesting in the other box, but she got a little later start.

Still waiting on the mallards.....

Its fun to sit up on the porch, with the smoke billowing out of the grill, the Twinks on the radio, and the new crop of waterfowl cruising the pond.

I got a hen wood duck using the box i put up two years ago on our 20.

It was neat to see her.

I don't hunt but i do enjoy wildlife

I have seen a ton of mallard fuzz balls on Birch Lake in WBL, and saw a TON of goose fuzz balls today - actually getting quite large now, I would call them "fuzz-soft-balls" even smile

Fun to watch them grow.

I have a pair of hooded mergansers nesting on our lake up north this year, I haven't seen the chicks yet, but hope to watch them grow along with the loon fuzz balls when they appear smile

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
