Larry: Were the LOONS on Contrary again?

I had that female GOLDENEYE there yesterday (Wed).

Where were the  SCOTERS? On the river?

We had 1 adult and 1 Juv. Bald Eagle at the cutoff north of Rosecrans
yesterday.

The SNOW GEESE were sure flying today...strings and strings of them right
over the house...bet they passed up Squaw Creek and headed for Smithville.

Not having much at feeders here in town...to many cats and squirrels...I'm
about to give up on feeding.
