Here are links to some of the things I talked about on KARE 11 Today this morning:
Safflower is a great tool when dealing with grackles at the feeder.
Now is a great time to watch for bald eagles along the Mississippi River (especially before the flooding kicks in). Drive down to the National Eagle Center this weekend and take part of their SOAR events. I'll be there Saturday and Sunday with Swarovski scopes for people to use and will do a professional optics cleaning on your binoculars. Saturday is a Birds and Beers gathering at Nelson Creamery from 4pm to 6pm--meet other birders and enjoy some tasty cheese and beer.
