That really is a  :wub like the sign too. You said 6 or 7 years do they still visit or have they gone for the big pool across the street. Nice to live across from a lake.

Hi Passerine-The last year that we put out a pool, the ducks didn't come, which led us to believe that it had been the same pair every year, and that probably one or both of them were lost. We don't know for sure. We don't put the pool out anymore, but every summer, there are lots of ducks in the neighborhood. They very rarely visit our yard, anymore.

Video:  Chehalis Fish Hatchery

Better than watching an aquarium  :thumbup

“Chehalis River Hatchery is a salmonid enhancement facility operated by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Government of Canada) near Harrison Mills in the province of British Columbia in Canada. We use modern fish culture techniques to produce coho salmon, chinook salmon, chum salmon, pink salmon, steelhead trout, and sea-run cutthroat trout. The juvenile fish are reared for two months to one year (depending on the species) at the hatchery and then released into the Chehalis River and the Harrison River. The juveniles then migrate to the Fraser River and out to the Pacific Ocean. The fish grow in the ocean from a few months up to four or five years. Those that have not been caught in various commercial and sport fisheries then return to the Chehalis River, the Harrison River, and the hatchery to spawn.”

Picture of male Northern Flicker on my back porch through window. Note this cool suet feeder special for woodpeckers as it gives them a place to balance with their tail. Love the orange on the underside of their feathers. :heart

This hawk has been around my property for years. I've never seen it with a mate, but I don't always see everything. I have taken many pictures, not real clear ones, but this is the best so far. I think it's a Redtail, but not positive.

Nice shot, Dizzymom.  That's interesting that you are living in that hawk's territory!   :biggrin6

I wonder what he thinks about the arrangement?!   :eclol

Well, Tiger, he hasn't taloned my hair yet and tried to carry me off, so I guess he's ok with it. :eclol

There is a topic in the Wildlife section for "mystery" animals or plants  - I'm not sure if there would be more people looking there instead of here, but maybe it is worth a try posting there as well.

This is some wonderful news for my tiny little hometown in southern lower Michigan. This is an article from our local newspaper that came out 3 days ago.

Ooooh Tiger, I hope so too. I wish I knew where the nest was and if it can be seen safely without disturbing them.
