Bog Hawks

6 posts in this topic

Took a ride down to the Saz Bog this morning to see what critters /birds were to be seen.....lots of hawks for sure!...things were all over the place!....Hwy #7 of course is where they always seem to be....fun to watch em "hovering" and then diving onto their perspective prey....here's a couple images of some "sort" of hawk...not sure what kind it is grin....I think it's an "immature morphanized mole snatcher" grin

Thanks Steve!....I figured you would have the variety down pat grin......after sitting down and doing some book searching...looks like there's a"light" and "dark" variety...this one looks more like the "light" one in my manual....

The plumage variations run from pale to almost solid brown/black and nearly everywhere in between.

Thanks for the clarification Steve. I noticed a hawk that was all black on our last trip up to Ely. I was curious what it was and forgot to look. Now I atleast have an idea.

I was far better at identifying birds as a kid when I spent 99% of my days in the woods.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
