I can't really say I've seen a ton of owls the last week or so but there certainly isn't a shortage of bald eagles! grin...saw 2 today on the north end of the "Bog"...Oh yes!....I ran into Mr.StCatfish this afternoon(Nichols Lake) also looking for those elusive owls .....no owls for me today! grin

Nice baldy shots.

I think the only GGO seen recently has been the McDaviit owl and its a shy one.

Nice shots Jonny. Now you have to get some of those owl shots grin I don't know why I said that when I need to get a couple of shots of both myself. We will see what the New Year brings.

I always wonder if you guys bring the moss and a glue gun for your shots. We don't get much of that here. Looks like you had a great day out even without your owl.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
