Got out Finally

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Lou Buscher, Jul 15, 2007.

  1. Well I figures I might just as well give this knee a test as I was getting pretty bored locked to my deck. Unfortunately nesting is over and all the young eagles have fledged but had to make this visit as I missed them. So my buddy and I took off in the morning with a full jug of coffee and made a day of it. How come my knee hurts so much today??? Quite harsh light most of the time we were there and some haze. Also need one ID.

    1 OK we don’t know what this is. My buddy took it from the eagle wagon with a 300 2.8 VRG and a 1.7TE on a D2X

    2 One of the young was roosting up river from the nest tree and flew out. (400mm)

    Wow those Mergansers can move. What a bunch:>)))))

    Nice shots all the way around.

    Hope you did not wear out that knee all in one day:>)))))

    Well at least you saw the young eagle:>)))))
  10. Thanks Gary I don't know how I screwed that up but I was looking at your post and I must have hit the reply and instead of adding to your post I must have started to post mine. I am looseing it for sure. I tried deleting my error and I think I did and your post is clear now. Again sorry.
  11. Thank you Frank and yeah we did . Two old men getting back out in the sun and no eagles left. Well I kinda thought that before we went but we wanted to just go out.
  12. Hi Jimmy and I thank you for the look.
  13. Thanks Gale and yes they can. I was in the bush along side the river waiting for them to come up to me (they were swiming up river) and my good buddy starts to walk and scares them so all I had was one burst at them. I believe we counted 13 in the bunch
