The Eagle Whisperer…………

bald eagle
I try to keep the eagle calm while Dean works his magic

You try making an eagle sit still while you paint it’s toes……..!!

Fortunately Dean has had plent of experience.  You could almost call him the “eagle whisperer” judging by how calm this eagle remained while  in the kitchen at VBL.

Dean giving the Eagle "beak to beak" enhancement.

 Is it open season on Eagles?

While they seem as thick as fleas, it is not part of any bag limit up here in the Great White North.  Unfortunately a number do succumb to “Eagle vs transport truck” encounters over the winter months……especially when road kill deer are used as bait.  This particular bird was picked up along the highway last winter, and after some legalities will now spend it’s summers indoors at Vermilion Bay Lodge.  Dean was gratious enough to tone down the lime green beak and feet that he came with.

The master of beaks........Dean!

  1. Hi Gord…Your ability to keep that eagle still while having its nails done was nothing short of amazing. Andy squirms all the place while I’m doing his. Any suggestions?

  2. Professor,

    Please note that Gord is not drilling through his nails. He is simply painting them.

    Some of you know that I lived in Lancaster, Wisconsin many years ago. Now read this strange article about an apparently open season on hawks here in the States. As you read this story, keep track of the number of absurd things happening in this story:

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
