    The first link is the Decorah Eagles. Last year we watched the eggs hatch.

    The last link is wolves in Oregon. It is produced by a group of ranching ladies. About 4 or 6 years ago, Dee spotted what she thought was a young solitary wolf. She phoned the fish and game office and they said no wolves in that area. Two years ago, same area, 2 wolf pups woke me up several times at night, while in elk camp.

    The following are Oregon ODFW sites. Introduction and management of the wolf is a controversail subject to some. Most of us in Eastern Oregon think the wolf should be shared with those on the populated side of the state. Starting with an introduction of wolves in Powell Park in Portland.

    We have watched the Osprey numerous times in the mountains of NE Oregon. Most of the times, the Osprey is unsuccessful in fishing.

    I should have mentioned, the ranch ladies are from Wallowa County, where the wolves have been succesfull in eating cows, deer and elk.

    I always thought loading up 6 to 8 wolves and drive straight through to NY city and turn them loose in central park about 9 pm. I wonder what the evening news would report? Would they be calling them beautiful majestic creatures or maybe something less?

    Depends, on if the wolves ate the homless people first or the dog and cat pets first

    With a payload in excess of 15,000kg, single osprey could carry enough coconuts to equip the Knights of the Round Table several times over.

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/aircraft/v-22-payload.htm

    Indeed it could carry Arthur and 23 of his men into combat with a rabbit.

    Or inside a French castle.

    It could even prove effective for evacuation should they choose to run away.

    Drove home yesterday evening, saw about 150 does and last years fawns in about 15 road miles. This evening I saw 4 of last years elk calves. One was shedding hair already. A few miles more and I saw a herd of 70 elk. In the standing water in the meadow, the frogs were singing, geese and ducks callling and I think I heard a couple of loons. Spring must be here. In Eastern Oregon, spring comes about 2 or 3 weeks after the last snow.

    nothing like starting the day by listening to loons ..... "what do you mean, what do you mean, what do you mean" is such a haunting call ....

    Hey GB,

    For some reason talking birds in Southern California have dropped the " What did you mean" phrase in favor of the more overheard " Because I said so" No explanation is immediately available but the Sierra Club is seeking protected status for the "What did you mean" sub-species.

    I thought the" because I said so" species was extinct in Oregon or at least considered an endangered species.

    Do eagles have to learn the proper technique to handle alligators?
