Update in Littl Falls 9/25/2009
There has been a cormorant fishing in the river here the last few days. I have been watching it as I cross the bridge each day . Also there are some mallards moving around in the wide open water with the cormorant. The mallards are also still hanging out in the dam spillways eating green moss. Some things learned: 1. Palin's "a view right from main street" speech was given in Hong Kong as reported in Ming Poa Hong Kong news paper. 2. A English farmer found 1,500 pieces of Anglo-Saxon historical intricately worked gold and silver from the seventh century. The pieces will be on display at the Birmingham Museum and art Gallery. Ref: Star Tribune, 9/25/2009 page A6 3. Minnesota is being blamed for a 3000 square mile "DEAD ZONE" in the Gulf of Mexico. Excess nutrients from farm fertilizer and runoff cause algae blooms that feed bacteria which remove oxygen from the water. Ref: Star Tribune, 9/25/09 page A12
