.. a Mourning Dove in Woodbury yesterday. It was in a residential area. I don't recall seeing one mid winter before.

Now that you mention it, it has been a long while since we've seen one.

I haven't had one since December at my house, but a friend only a block and a half away has several all winter long every winter. Though, come to think of it she has been in Hawaii frown for two weeks and I have not seen one when I filled the feeders. I will have to check with her on the dove status when she gets home. If the doves were smart they would have been the ones in Hawaii.

I have a pair that show up every evening for water and food. There is also a small flock of robins that show up for water every morning.

I saw one way up here northwest of Duluth about two weeks ago.

We've got lots of them in Iowa. Probably the last State that does'nt allow hunting them. Some mornings I'll have one to two dozen of them on the ground feeder. They may seem sweet but they have an attitude to them also.

I haven't seen any doves around here, but the robins are all over the place.

I saw two robins in my yard about a month ago, but none since.

Everyday we have a pair that show up at the watering hole farthest from the house, and then move up to pick up seeds from below the feeders hanging from our deck. I'm still working on purchasing some new digital equip. so I can start to share our fortune with all.

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
