Bald Eagle in Winter

Bald Eagle in Winter,
originally uploaded by mwaulk.

It is bald eagle migration time. Each year from the middle of February through the middle of March, hundreds of them migrate up the Mississippi River Valley through Red Wing. It is an amazing sight. Eagle spotting tents are set up in Colville Park; binoculars are available. Stay at the Moondance Inn Bed and Breakfast. We can guide you to the eagle sighting as well as to other happenings in the area.

PS. Dont’s forget Girlfriends Day Out on February 19. See our previous blog for the link to take you there.

Moondance Inn Bird Watching in Red Wing

Sunday, August 12th, 2007

I forgot to get back on the bird watching. Since I have completely discontinued feeding the birds I have more birds and more varied birds than before. I would like to think this was a lesson from above but in actuality this is the first year I ever planted sunflowers. The little buggers just love them.

OK. My bird seed was disappearing at a rapid rate from one of my more open I.V. bird feeders. Over breakfast at the B&B I discussed this with our guests who, of course, assumed it was a squirrel (I did too, but I never saw one). About an hour later a deer walked into the yard and ate the bird seed. Since I love gardening and have done all I can to keep deer away you can imagine my excitement level!!!!!

A few years ago I purchased an I.V. stand at a garage sale. I didn’t know what I would use it for but I liked it. Now I have 3 bird feeders hanging from it. Who knew? Also I put a little pump in the bird bath next to the I.V. bird feeder. There was alot of action there this morning. At some point in time I need to begin learning what birds I am seeing.

I just returned from an all day seminar sponsored by Explore Minnesota. I am not a birder so everything was new to me. I had no idea how highly ranked Minnesota is in the number of species found here as well as the migration of so many birds through our state. I would love to hear from anyone that has knowledge about birds in our part of the state, Southeastern Minnesota.
