Going to Wabasha, any tips on locations?

7 posts in this topic

Girlfriend and I are going to Wabasha tonight to celebrate V-Day early, and tomorrow we are going to take a trek to the National Eagle Center. Wondering if anyone has any tips on other locations in Wabasha to shoot some photos.

You will see plenty of birds along the river. north of Winona along the east side was some good viewing ares. When I moved my daughter down there for school it would be nothing to see 50-100 eagles. Good luck and hope to see the shots on Monday when I return to work.

I've actually had my best luck at Colville Park, on the south end of Red Wing. Read's Landing is another potential area. There are a couple areas along the hwy. to pull over. Even if you don't see anything, it still pays to pull over and just watch for awhile. You just never know when they are going to fly by.

Good luck.

Snapped a couple shots at Reed's Landing on the way back on Friday.

Here is one that I did a 100% crop and adjusted the exposure on.

Still decent detail considering it was shot at 200mm from a pretty good distance. I need to go back down there armed with a 400 or better to get some better shots. A little bit of blue sky might have helped too.

Here is the original.

Tom, I know how you feel. The day I made it to redwing, it was greyer than a black and white TV and the birds were a long ways away.

It's the luck of the draw, whether you'll get any good opps at that place. At least you came back with an eagle photo. And yes, blue sky always helps.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
