Somebody emailed me a photo two days ago asking me to id the bird in the photo. Due to a power outage and a roadtrip I didn't have a chance to respond. The photo is of an immature bald eagle.
I am currently in Indiana for a moment for a wedding. My mother is sitting next to me as I type this. Any words mom?
I'm grateful that it's not as pornographic as it could have been. She's really enjoying the road to senility.
For those interested there is a FABULOUS article about the Minnesota owl irruption inthe July issue of Wild Bird Magazine. Whoever wrote it should be getting multiple book deals and possibly a Pulitzer...(okay, I'm the cheese ball that wrote the article, but it's still a good read). Also, a good friend Jeff Bouton has an article in there about how to tell sharp-shins from Cooper's hawks--and he actually has some good tips in there. Who knew?? He's more than just a pretty face.
