.. 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.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
