    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    We were fishing in a boat at the mouth of the Willamette and I looked over by the shore and about 40 ft. off shore there was a tower. The tower was about 50 ft. high and about 8" square at the top, then I notice this guy standing at the top, watching boats and writing things down on paper. I tell my bud "check this guy out, he's gotta be roasting up there" and my bud waves to the guy and says hi and the guy just looks at us and writes some more stuff down. Then I notice that directly behind the guy on shore there are eagles fledging their eaglets in a tree at about the same height, I snicker and say "I'd rather be watching the eagles"....LOL
    Twenty minutes later I look up to notice he's looking down river now, then I start laughing so hard I almost fell outta the boat, at the slightely different angle I see that it's just a torso ontop of a rotating cylinder. Powered by solar panels this thing turns every so often, looks up, down and pretends to write things.... Now LMFAO I realize my buddy has just waved and said hello to a dummy, that will set the eagles at rest so they can in turn be studied at a later date by real people....
    I know I know way too long and not a big pay off, kinda had to be there, so the next time your at the mouth of the Willamette give it a look. We sat there and watched that thing for hours....It was pretty entertaining when not catching anything but a Buzzz!!!!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
