Roseville is no less exciting. Here are some recent posts about Bald Eagles seen within less than a mile of our home. Turkeys are also big in the neighborhood, with a two or three routinely disrupting rush-hour traffic at Fairview Avenue and Highway 36.
To: email@example.comDon’t even get me started on deer - they are as bad as squirrels in some places. Haven’t seen a ton in Roseville, though others have, but I did have an interesting encounter Tuesday while walking on the “path” out back at work. As I approached three deer who were munching along the side of the path, two scampered away, but one held his ground. It was situated on a bend in the path, so I was walking directly toward it - but it had no fear. I was able to pass within 10 feet of it, and it didn’t budge. Probably could have betted the dang thing if I approached it slowly and said cute, cuddly things to it. Hope it shows more fear of cars.

Subject: [mou] Bald Eagles Roseville/Falcon Heights
To my surprise I observed a pair of Bald eagles male and female, I presume due to size difference, perched in a tree behind fast food row ,specifically Burger King, 1 block west of Snelling Ave. and Cty Rd B across from Har Mar Mall in Roseville! One flew over my car tree top level and lead me to the tree where I observed the second. They vocalized quite a bit and preened. They seemed quite content unlike the crows which were of course mobbing and growing in numbers as time went on.
Reported Tuesday, 2/28, by another observer: adult BALD EAGLE in the "Grove" area near the U of M St. Paul campus, Ramsey County. Bird was in the trees southwest of Larpenteur and Cleveland Aves. Being harassed by a flock of crows.
