    Seeing a lot of robins passing through right now. Most ospreys Have left. Seeing more eagles than ever before in my travels.

    About ten years ago I had an eagle flying near me skimming the water as I drive my boat.
    Told people and tried showing them. They said I was nuts. Then someone saw one in champaign.
    Then st Joe. Finally I took a picture of the roost.
    Nobody believed that either. Now...eagles come in groups of 4 and scare all the ducks away then hang around for an hour watching my decoys.

    My daughter calls them sky Coons because she saw them digging in dumpsters in Alaska.

    Pile of Robin's here this morning, had a push of dive come thru too I believe.


    Had a pair of Golden Eagles here about 10 days ago, I thought it was pretty cool except they were sitting on a field that had about 300- 8-15# lambs in it. No wonder they almost went the way of the dodo.

    Saw a few blue pooletts in a retention pond. How they make it down here is amazing...Must take the "red eye" out of Canada.

    What is a blue poolett??

    While you’re at it, this might be a good time to share the entire Bull Island Decoder Ring. It’s been several years since I’ve seen that and some newer members might appreciate learning the difference between a suddlin and a whiffler.
