  1. I did a float trip down the brule once, but never fished it unfortunately. If I’m able to venture up there in 2021, I’d attack it the same way I do the trout streams in Pierce County...small husky jerks!
  2. My gold finches have almost completely disappeared! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it’s saving me a fortune on sunflower chips! Just feels weird not having to fill up the feeder every other day.
  3. I wonder if he thought the “SNL Jeopardy” skits were funny? How’s your mother, Trebeck? The penis mightier ?
  4. You guys should be praying they lose every game! Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes in April!
  5. Unfortunately it looks like the jets and giants have the same idea.
  6. Anyone still have hummingbirds around? I haven’t seen mine since last week, so I’m thinking they left for the season.
  7. Was just in Marcell area for a few days...didn’t see any. Lots of blue jays. Seen a few magpies too.
  8. What’s the farthest south you’ve ever seen gray jays? My brother in law has property just north of Cloquet, but I’ve never seen any there. I see plenty in Grand Marais and Ely. But I think the farthest south I’ve seen them is in George Washington State Forest, north of Grand Rapids.
  9. I haven’t seen red wings in a long while. Felt it was safe to put out my regular suet feeders today. Goldfinches have really put on the feed bag! I’m going through sunflower chips faster than I can afford!
  10. Is the sugar water slower to ferment, than nectar? Or does it ferment at all? I’ve had it out for a week, and they’re still loving it! Just wondering if I should be refreshing it at all.
  11. Didn’t look like an oriole at all. Never seen them at my feeders, just in the tree. They are smaller than the finches and chickadees.
  12. What are you guys seeing for warblers in your yards? Caught a glimpse of a yellow bird, that clearly wasn’t a goldfinch. Was able get a couple decent looks at it, but it would not hold still. I’m thinking Nashville warbler. Are those common in Minnesota?
  13. Switched to sugar water today, and it was a success! Saw a hummingbird buzzing around my pine tree, then landed on a branch (never seen a hummingbird NOT flying before), then buzzed over and helped himself to a drink ?
  14. I was using fatheads on the croix last week with little success. Take that with a grain of salt though, because I wasn’t catching anything on artificials leading up to that either.
  15. Now I have go buy sugar ? I use raw honey to sweeten everything at home, so sugar has rarely ever been on our shopping list.
  16. Kepler is on pace for 120 homers. Maybe his pace will be as epic for the game as the summer of ‘98...minus the steroids.
  17. Thanks! That all makes sense. Just refreshed it, so we’ll see what happens. Do I have to refrigerate the bottle of nectar after I open bottle?
  18. I had put up a feeder a couple months ago, and it only took the hummingbirds a couple minutes to discover it. But the feeder was faulty, and the hummingbirds couldn’t get the nectar out of it. I’ve since replaced the feeder, but the hummingbirds have never returned. How do I attract them back?
  19. Put up a hummingbird feeder, and within minutes had a visitor ?
  20. Had a banner 24 hours in my neighborhood! Saw my first oriole, bluebird, and hummingbird of the season.
  21. Starlings and grackles. Luckily the one starling I had in my yard only stuck around for a few days. Eventually, if more show up for extended periods, I will break out the pellet gun. As far as grackles go, they’re easy to drive away, and usually stay away after that. I tolerate red wing black birds.
  22. Saw a rose breasted grosbeak at the feeders this morning. Nice to see them back.
  23. I think the first and third are river redhorse? Second is a white sucker? Last one had bright red tail and fins and was a paler color (and very camera shy), so I was thinking shorthead redhorse?
