    Plenty of ducks around here this year. I haven't been happy with a lot of pics from this set so I did a little something to try to make it better. Well see how it works out in a few days. [​IMG]

    Holy woodduck flocks...when are we going duck hunting? Nice pics, love seeing them. The coyote crossing the beaver dam is a good one.

    Sometimes it is as simple as cutting 3 foot out of a log. Some days the deer won't cross through. Jumping the log 3 feet away. I will delete down to three pics before this is over otter hill.jpg

    Funny story.... I was out checking fruit trees over the weekend. One of the plantings is by an elevated tower blind. The window was left open for some reason.... anyway.... I get close to the blind and I hear a ruckus. Next thing I know a big very light colored owl comes out of it.... then another. Scared the s*** out of me. So I go up there and they had apparently moved in. Dead critters and lots of doo doo. I shut the window and said damn as I thought about cleaning up the mess.... then I thought of this thread. So, I went and mounted a trail camera in there and opened the window back up. I wonder if they will come back? I looked up "owls in Iowa" and they didn't look like any of the pictures. (I am sure they are). Hopefully I get some cool pics.

    Oh, and my "beaver dam cam" got wiped out by 3" of rain..... along with the damn itself. I should have known. New meaning to "Money down the drain" !!!!

    The owl pictures get my vote. That's something you don't see very much!

    Barn owls are pretty rare around here. I’ve only seen one ever. Great pics

    dagnabit....now I feel bad. Maybe ill put up a barn owl nesting box next to the blind. They are obviously doing some good cleaning up the mice and voles.

    You can’t kick them out now with a egg in there. The blind is there’s until deer season plus a colored pic would be awesome:cool:

    I left the door open so they not locked out. Ill build a box tomorrow per the DNR website dimensions and attach it to the blind. Hopefully they go in there.
