I found this one in Spring branch in 2015. He was flopping his wings funny and couldn't dive.  Thought maybe he was wrapped in some line.I grabbed him from the water but I coudn't find anything wrong

Well the loons are back, number of loons I saw was about equal to the number of fish I caught. I fished Tuesday and today in the upper White and totaled about 20 bass over 2 days, 3 keepers.  Thi

They are very curious birds. I had a few days were they would swim under my boat fast and around 10-15 feet deep. I actually bought a loon call (4 different calls)  in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It

Up in Canada they were all over the place. An Indian guide taught me to listen for loons, when they made a certain noise. He said every time they make this certain noise, look over head and you’ll see an eagle flying around. I’ll be darn he was always right...I guess it was a warning noise similar to a deer snorting.

Not seeing any loons lately but will see them in due time. We have had an unusual bird sighting. Over the last three weeks we have been seeing a young male peacock. He has been seen on one of the properties near our house. Someone looks to be feeding it. Livie and I hadn't  seen it in a few days then there he was walking along the road. Don't know how long he will last due to possibly lack of feed or the abundant foxes around us.

There’s a farm off the Katy trail on the MO river has a bunch of them.  People report seeing them in nearby subdivisions.  They’ve been there for years.  I’ve seen them a bunch of times in the bottoms. Seems like they do ok in Missouri.  There’s even a couple white ones.

They are very curious birds. I had a few days were they would swim under my boat fast and around 10-15 feet deep. I actually bought a loon call (4 different calls)  in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It looks like a birch flute and  sounds just like a Loon. I am now able to communicate with the swimmers as to where the bass are hanging out in the lake. From one Loon to another. . . lol

Do you guys see pelicans down there in the winter, I was at LOZ the other day and they have arrived there

We typically see the White Pelicans on their way through during Spring/Fall migrations but only very briefly.  Saw an unusually large flock of about 35 birds circling above and beyond the neighboring Ridge to land over in the Little Indian Creek arm two weeks ago during that cold, rainy spell.  They fly in a different formation than the huge flocks of Snow Geese that pass over since they kind of "stack-up" in single file, one bird behind the one in front and just a little higher.  I've never personally witnessed them hanging around...maybe others have ?

Thought  about what they would taste like as well. Probably like pheasant. To me most upland birds taste pretty similar.

 

I couldn’t disagree more.    I’d eat as many Hungarian partridge over a sage grouse or prairie chicken.    Pheasants are a close second in the table fare.     
 

As far as that loon goes,   I attempted to eat a ring neck duck.     I imagine something similar.   It didn’t go well!

I knew that I would get called out. I have eaten quail, eastern pheasants, chukars, and I believe huns. I figured that anyone that has had prairie chickens or sage grouse would likely disagree. Now I have specifically stated eastern pheasants. Out this way pheasant pen raised birds and are put and take hunts. I am sure that they are somewhat like stocker trout versus ones that have been in the river for a while or raised in the river. Just my limited experience.

More than willing to eat any grouse, Ptarmigan, etc. that you want to send me 😉

Man I hate peacocks, they are the loudest bird out there.

Maybe the peacocks hate you! Have you ever considered that? 😆 😂
