Grouse sighting! And squirrel invasion!

On Saturday morning we were milling around finishing up things before we went to pick up the next crew and right outside the door we saw a mama grouse and a whole bunch of baby grouslings (is that right?)  There were so cute.  It was as if their mama had taken them on a field […]

Focusing on Flight

A number of our guests have captured some incredible pictures of birds so far this summer!  I thought we would share some of them with some fun facts. Bald Eagle: King of the jungle, so to speak.  Although they are commonly associated with the United States, where it has served as the national emblem since […]

We had a Canadian lynx come to breakfast!

I kid you not. Yesterday morning as Mary-Jane and I were getting into the thick of our french toast operation (side note: MARY-JANE IS HERE!) I looked up from the stove and noticed something moving through the grass.  A sweet little kitty cat.  Back in Illinois we will sometimes see a neighbor cat stalk through […]

A brace, a flock, a paddling, a badling…say what?

This hen merganser duck has quite the little flock to tend to.  Chris & Pete who took the picture said they were able to count at least two dozen ducklings, but zooming in on the photo I can see over 30.  It is pretty unusual to see this many ducklings with one mama duck. Mergansers […]

Eastern Garter Snake sighted!

Travis has been coming up here for a long time and can probably count the number of times he has seen or heard of someone seeing a snake on one hand.  So they certainly aren’t considered common in these parts as far as wildlife goes.  However, last week two of our guests got a picture […]

Wolf sighting

Cosmo resumed his post as camp defender and has already been put to the test! Last week before our guests arrived we had a visitor of sorts.  Travis and I were outside the main lodge working on something in early evening.  Cosmo was loungingaround as per usual when all of a sudden his ears perked […]

Eagle Watch 2013

Here’s the thing…. We like the eagles.  And its not just because we’d be feathered and tarred if we didn’t (is that too ironic, perhaps?) but we genuinely like them.  I think they are quite moving really.  Such a regal creature.  Its not too surprising that we see a fair amount out at the lodge […]

Moose sighting just between Vermillion Bay and Red Lake

Good morning all! These pictures come from Ethan in Missouri and were taken on his way up to Eagle Falls Lodge last month.  We wanted to share these incredible pictures with you guys and give a quick reminder about making sure you are on the lookout for moose crossing the road as you are driving […]

Black bear sighting in camp!

Good morning everyone! We are well into our 3rd week of guests (which doesn’t seem possible) and they are having a great week so far.  Weather has stayed very nice, but we had an overcast day yesterday and we’ve gotten a little bit of rain in the evenings. Travis’ family is up here so he […]

Red Lake & Parker Lake Fishing Update – Lots of Nice Northern Pike

Good Morning! I just finished helping our first week guests load everything up (in the rain and upper 40 degree temps!) for the ride home.  I’ll be in town today making the usual stops to get our supplies for the group coming in tomorrow.  It looks like it will be pretty wet and fairly cool […]
