We may have been taking them for weeks, but mine don't look like that!!! Whoever thought a grackle could be that beautiful. And I love the female purple--she is so well framed.

Yep, they're starting to get a bit boring. whistle

Not really. Nice series, Ken. You sure can't complain about the sharpness on these, especially the Junco. I love the environment that you captured him and the Fox Sparrow in. That's certainly one advantage you northern folks have. Us southerners have to look hard to find a pine tree. grin

Geez, Ken, I know darn well you shot that environmental of the open water/ice on the lake from your own deck. Lazy Finns! gringringrin

Oh, BTW, when you gonna let that tame ruffed grouse out of its cage so it can drum some more? At least let it out when I'm there! Yikes, I'm dead now. Last favor I ever get from KPS. shockedshocked

Whoa! How many zingers did you get in one post! First of all, the poor ruffie has been workin' for me so hard the last couple of days he needed his rest - it's in his contract!

Secondly, not from my deck - I at least made it down to the other end of the lake! grin

Yeah, well, zingers have a way of circling around like boomerangs and hitting the launcher in the back of the head. No doubt the time will come when I feel blood dribbling down my neck. smilesmile

I am going to go with Birdsong on this one. Whoever thought a grackle could be that beautiful.

I have to really admire that image of the grackle too - that doesn't mean I have to like the real thing tho, does it? confused Really, they're all very pretty birds & images!

these are terrific!!!

I saw in the posts someone mentioning ruffed grouse while they were drumming, last spring I was lucky enough to find a male doing his thing, over and over and over,, lol it was funny to watch him, but then I didn't have the gear I have now, I will post the pics I got with my canon rebel xt for you to see,, it was dark, and wasn't able to get really what I wanted, I hope to come across some this spring

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
