More migrants coming......

Recommended Posts

Haven't been out much lately,but went to our local marsh on Sunday for an hour and saw many species re-fueling. The wind was awful,but the birds still didn't mind my being around them too much as I didn't have any camo clothing on but they didn't seem to care. Restricted by ground,I approached as close as I could for some images. Looking forward to getting out in the canoe for some close up shots.

Nice shots there, but please tell me, are the warblers there yet?

Nope-well,not technically anyway. I definately heard a Yellow Rumped Warbler the other day,but could not locate the little bugger. They are almost always the 1st to show up so it wasn't a suprise.

I have a nice little out of the way spot close to home that is always where I sight 4 species before I see them anywhere else. All 4 seem to show up on the same day-er,I shouldn't say that,they may come during the week,but all are there on that Saturday when I show up. The 4 are: Hermit Thrush,Yellow Rump Warbler,Kinglets,and YB Sapsucker.

FWIW Mike [micpic] has already seen some Hermit Thrushes. I did see an Eastern Phoebe on Sunday.

I'm hoping to get a better shot of a Black Throated Blue Warbler this year. There are some that nest just down the road from me along with nesting Redstarts,Nashvilles,and Tennesees also.

Summer can't get here soon enough!

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
