Hey you Iowa guys/gals...

...have you seen or photograped any horned larks yet? Think I've been encountering them along the road on trips home to feed the bottle lamb the past couple days. Hard to see details while driving but it sure looks like they could be horned larks.

I've seen a lot of horned larks in south central and west central Minnesota the past 3 weeks.

lol! Now that's about as aptly as they can be described. Wildlife pond filled with snow runoff the past two days and now this morning, a couple Canada geese already paddling around the skim ice on its surface. Spring is on the way...maybe.

I found a ton of them in January that were not so skittish. They were scavenging from a corn spill and paid little attention to me. Unfortunately, it was during a snow storm. It would be tempting to 'spill' a little corn on the side of a quiet road.

    • Ya gotta die of something sooner or later might as well do it with a full tummy!
    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.
