I've heard of birdies and eagles on the golf course but that's ridiculous. 

I was at the Plattsburgh Boat basin yesterday and there's a bunch of geese just hanging around with assorted sea gulls and a guy pulls up in a car and unloads 2 loaves of bread and a full bag a popcorn on them and there's bird mayhem for 15 minutes. No wonder they don't want to migrate.

Tell you what I don’t love is whipping goose crap off greens so I can mow. They camp out on our putting green (about 9000sq. Ft.) and the two closing greens at the club house. Both over 7000 sq ft.

Worst part is now they’re molting and can’t fly. So they and their unbelievable broods spend all their time on the fairways and  greens and even sitting in the bunkers.

I’ve told several golfers they can deduct 2 strokes for each goose they hit.

One good thing is the foxes are well fed.

I was throwing away hanging baskets today and almost dumped a cow bird chick whose mother dropped an egg in a robins nest.

Sneaky birds, those cow birds. Had a Coopers Hawk in my Maple tree today eating a robin with about 10 other robins having a fit.

Yeah, I need to charge up my cam and get it out. Birds haven’t forum our feeders as yet. Put them out Sunday. Just a couple goldfinches so far. Squirrels found the seed on the ground from a couple windy days. They haven’t worked out how to get up there yet, but they will eventually.

We have an osprey that has a nest in the front yard tree.
The chicks are gone now since the storm, but the osprey still returns here and there.
I will ask donna to snap a few picks with her camera.

Well, that’s Fred……
But the neighborhood flock found our feeders this morning. They were out in force which will be the case for the rest of the winter.

On another note the price of a 50 lb bag of black oil seed went from $19 two years ago to $32 this year. Can’t say what mealworms for the bluebirds will cost. Probably need a second mortgage.

Yeah, just picked up a big bag, same price, seed-flation.
