A raptor kind of day

12 posts in this topic

Went down to my folks for a couple of days, and saw these and a ton of other raptors on my trip back (unfortunately w/o more pix):

Not that I could see. I would think they would be big enough by now to make their presence known. I stuck around for about 45 minutes. Osprey #2 came in with a northern about 20 inches long, made a swing and left without me being able to take a shot!

Beautiful shots. I believe my favorite is the third one.

Well, lucky it was outside the slot. Think a C.O. would write a ticket for an osprey carrying a 28-inch pike? Shucks, how's a poor bird to pay for such a fine? gringrin

Fantastic work Ken! Are those young baldies or something else?

Really nice images, Ken. We have an osprey that often flies over the bay by our cabin. We've not had any luck finding the nest.

    • yes, took it this week, Monday, just off a bike path in SW Rochester that runs along the Zumbro river.     I was surprised to see it as well.    The bluebells and wood anemones and trout lilies were in full bloom, which is a couple weeks earlier than usual.      
    • Is that a recent photo Del? I was in the woods yesterday and found nothing north of Elk River. I did find this though. Bear?
    • Do people who have had a stroke find the lies better? It is hard to believe, but this idea raises scientific curiosity since the journal Nature published a curious study in the year 2000. According to the authors, those who have gone through this trance and have suffered a decline in the linguistic ability known as aphasia detect the 73 percent of attempts to lie to them. And they base their ability to interpret more acutely the gestures that draw the faces of their interlocutors Cellulite The rest of the people pick up the hoaxes about half the time.
      Please Suggest me I am waiting for your answers
    • Looks like Dryads Saddle aka Pheasant's Back to me.    http://minnesotaseasons.com/Fungi/Dryads_Saddle.html
    • Try the narrow channel on Enchanted Isle.  The shallow water holds carp and sunnies this time of year, giving you plentiful small action and the occasional larger fish to reel in.
    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
