Oh I do have a question. Do the Mississippi River Boats or Steamboats that cruise up and down the Mississippi River Go by this beautiful nest? I believe the Ohio River also has the Steamboats or River Boats. What a lovely way to lazily cruise along the Mississippi River right up or down the heart of our country. Just wondering if these beautiful boats go up the Mississippi that far? I suppose I could google it. I would have to look for exact location of nest and google itinerary of the River Boat. Hey anyone near this nest know. Thanks so kindly. Looking forward to the Valors with their new Lady. Do so hope they stay at this nest.

I googled it and looks like only accessible by golf cart tour and by tour on land. Sounds like the nest is in a wildlife refuge and and disturbance by water would scare the birds. Sounds like no tour boats or Mississippi steamboats. Would be fun to drive there and tour the nest in one of the group tours. Nice day trip. Cannot picture this area . Do not know the geography of the upper Mississippi. Do know they have Riverboat steam boat cruises in the south on the Mississippi. Would be pretty fall drive/visit. Before winter comes in.
