  1. Saturday morning and all is well at the Willow red shoulders. 3 young all looking good but still I only see one of the parents. I need to see both at the same time as I am wondering about one missing. (6 photos)

  6. Thanks Gary for following. I looked this morning early as we had a bad hail storm yesterday but I see 3 in my scope. I didn't take any photos as I really don't like to bother them every day so a quick peek with the scope is all I need today. I really need to see both parents together.
    I went to check an eagle nest yesterday and saw both young but still not wandering out of the nest on to a branch so I guess next week. The farmer also told me he would be cutting the hay there so I will be able to drive my Outback to a blind spot I have about 350 feet downriver. Funny thing with the haying. If he uses a tractor with out a roof they give him hell but if he takes the one with the roof they are fine and don't even bother to look.

    How funny that they make that distinction! :biggrin:
  10. Yes Lisa that is a fact and God forbid he has to get off the tractor for a stone or something else going wrong as they will start a riot going. He is really good with them though and loves that they nest on his land.
    Thanks for the look
