Eagles

6 posts in this topic

Not into the bird watching thing much, but I found one that might interest the serious watchers. I am from Alex area and there is a Bald Eagle nest bigger than life at the Arrowwood resort. when you pull in it is off to the left a couple hundred yards you can watch them now from the driveway, road, or parking lot. It is kinda cool. What a huge nest made of branches.

Thanks for the info. I'm too far away to take advantage of this, but birders and photographers are always looking for tips on where to find something interesting.

Another Eagle tip for the adventourus, There has been reports of some eagle haning out in a rathur unualsual place. The Fargo City Landfill. Since it has been so extreme cold this year and the rivers are all frozen even at the dams, there are a couple of Baldies living at or around the Fargo lanfill. I have not yet had the chance to see them myself but it came from a pretty reliable source within my photography club.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to keep it in mind, next time I head that way. If you see any activity, please post it here or email me. I have no idea when chicks start hatching, but I know I'll be there in the spring, looking for loon chicks. However, I have an idea that the eagle chicks will hatch long before the loon chicks.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
