I probably am too, but have lots of birds around.   I feed straight black sunflower seeds and some suet cakes.    Going fast.   

 

Just put the low platform feeder out today.   I'll put some seeds on tomorrow.   Wife calls it the Squirrel Buffet....

I just started putting the deer food out, and the blue jays and squirrels are taking advantage of it, as it usually takes a few days for the deer to discover it. Wrapped up my yard work today, and exposed a whole bunch of acorns that the squirrels had buried into leaf piles. Going to be a breakfast buffet tomorrow morning!

Still a few juncos here. The regular crowd was busy feeding yesterday during the light rain. Slinky’s are really helping the suet feed mostly birds. I stopped putting it right on the trees and changed to plant hangers. Flying squirrels don’t bother it also.  Now they last a week or two instead of a day.  The cardinals love the meal worm feeder with the roof but I just use oils in it. Daughter finally got a feeder in elk river area and filled it with oils. Had 4 cardinals on it an hour later. Then the squirrels found it. lol.

I can’t remember for sure but I think my earliest bird report of the season was for crazy early wood ducks in the spring.  I get to close the season (I think) with a report of a pair of woodies in my creek behind the house tonight.  
 

River is icing up big time and I shot what I thought would be my last mallard for the year Sunday evening at the creek.  Couldn’t get a good, clean shot at these woodies though so I let em be.  Maybe tomorrow, or maybe they are my nesting pair and leave them be...

You know if you feed them corn all summer, they are extra tasty and easy to shoot in the fall...😀


All the corn I have starts with an A.  And I have plenty of them.  A couple houses hung too.  Spose I should put the Free Food and Lodging sign And get some more takers. 🌰🦆👨‍🍳

I have wondered what happens to those mallards that the kids feed bread to all summer on Vermilion when duck season starts...  Summer... walk out on the dock and here they come....  Fall ????

    • I think the part smurfy left out is the french press.   https://www.thespruceeats.com/egg-coffee-2952648   The only place I have had egg coffee is at some lutheran church's diner at the state fair.  It's a pretty decent cup of coffee.
    • Coffee grounds boiled egg?  You been reading to many of Del's Sous Vide posts! 🤢🤮 😆
    • Maybe I'm missing something, but doesn't the egg cook in the boiling water?  I'm picturing coffee with bunch of floating bits of scrambled eggs floating at the top.
    • I think it's diluted.  It's a different sort of awful than burnt awful.
    • my guess super cheap and a poor grade of coffee!!!!!!!!!!   if anyone uses on of them pots papadarv has pictured, try making egg coffee. man thats good stuff. simply put the coffee grounds in a cup, and an egg, no shells, mix good and put in the boiling water. you do need to pay attention, it boils over easy. when you think its done, just add a bit of cold water, this makes everything settle sooner. and enjoy.
    • Right to the ice if possible but hard to do in snow. Push them into the slush. Gaps let wind in
    • ... in an attic.  I’m due to re-blow that cellulose insulation into my attic this spring. The first time I had a professional blow it in. I’m have heard that re-insulating it is a project you can do yourself you could just rent the machine/blower. Has anybody here done it themselves?  I’m also getting my roof redone this spring. Should the cellulose insulation be blown in after the roofing is completed or doesn’t  it matter?
    • With the amount they must go through in a morning I've always been amazed at how god awful most hotel coffee is.
    • What does everyone like for hole sleeve length? Right to the ice, 1/2 or 1 inch off?  Just a day fishing/run and gun rig so freeze in is not a huge concern.
    • Yeah that would be a good start.  We should have won that Iowa game but we got handled pretty well from Wisconsin.
