Lyle Bradley: The natural
Lyle Bradley, a retired Anoka H.S. biology teacher is an avid birder who lives on the Rum River and teaches Community Ed. birding classes. He once lead high school students to look for fossils in Wyoming and found dinosaur bones that are still on display in the Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul. Bradley, a World War II pilot, says it's an incredible treat to see fuzzy wood duck babies pop out of the boxes and flop to the ground.
Teacher Lyle Bradley, a fixture in Anoka for about 55 years, was guiding a recent field trip at the Coon Rapids Dam for another one of his sold-out ornithology classes. Along with his queries, he gave the 20 students a copied green sheet bearing his handwritten list of ducks, swans, cranes and birds seen on their last outing. After such trips, he jots down the species seen and how many.
Bradley, a former Marine fighter pilot, also has taught community education classes on World War II aviation, explorers Lewis and Clark, and attracting birds to your back yard, said Mischelle Squire, adult learning coordinator for the Anoka-Hennepin School District.
"With Lyle, we put his name in [the class catalog] and people sign up even if they are not interested in the topic. People sign up just because Lyle is teaching it," Squire said.
Bradley is a fascinating teacher with a range of interests, Squire said.
Bradley has an uncanny connection with nature, Carlson said.
Bradley said he has been watching flying things, including insects, kites and planes, since he was 5.
"Anything that flew," he said. His love of flying eventually led him to become a U.S. Marine fighter pilot in World War II and the Korean War.
One of Bradley's favorite fowl is the wood duck. He has about 30 duck boxes erected amid more than a thousand pines and black walnut trees he and friends have planted on his 15-acre homestead along the Rum River. He and his wife, Carol, also raised five children in their hillside home overlooking river wetlands in Andover.
Bradley, a founder of the Wood Duck Society, said Walter Breckenridge, a former Bell Museum director at the University of Minnesota, taught him how to talk to wood ducks nesting in their boxes.
That gets the hen used to Bradley when he visits the box to gauge when she will hatch her brood, usually more than a dozen ducklings. He said when the peeping babies pop out of the box's round hole, they have fluffy parachutes slowing their fluttering descent to their calling mother on the ground.
It's a thrilling sight, he said, seated in his front yard near three wood duck boxes, two with incubating females.
But even more exciting was a once-in-a-lifetime find almost 40 years ago on a ranch ridge in Wyoming. Bradley led 22 fossil-hunting summer trips, from Arizona to Canada, for Anoka High students starting in the mid-1960s. On a 1970 trip, Bradley said he found a 10-inch toenail and other dinosaur bones.

Welcome to Horicon Marsh Bird Club - Wisconsin, 19 Mar 2008 [cached]
Lyle Bradley was born in Iowa in 1924. His interest in birds started early on, as he was interested in anything that flies (birds, insects, kites, airplanes). Lyle says that birds have influenced his entire life and have even saved his life a few times. He was a Naval Aviator and USMC Aviator from 1942 to 1967. He taught Biology and was the Science Administrator from 1953 to 1984 at Anoka High School, Minnesota. He has been involved with several ornithological and Audubon groups over the years and is past president and Newsgram editor of the Wood Duck Society. He has birded all 50 states as well as several foreign countries. Not only has Lyle taught high school, he has also spoken to many other groups, of all ages, for bird clubs, scout groups, adult education classes, garden clubs, and sportsmen groups over the years about birds and birding. He has led over 1000 field trips, and has written many newspaper and magazine articles about birds. Lyle lives with his wife, Carol, in Andover, Minnesota, where they have raised their 5 children and over 3000 wood ducks
Fortean Times Message Board - North American mound builders, 20 June 2004 [cached]
For this reason and others, Lyle Bradley, Anoka County environmentalist and retired Anoka High School science teacher, as well as state archeologists, discount that the mound north of the Rum River was any kind of burial site.
"It's beyond human comprehension building something like that," said Bradley.He believes that the mound is not a burial site because the cultures at that point of time in question possessed only archaic tools.
The mounds located along the eastern bank of the Rum River in northern Anoka were surveyed and it was determined they couldn't have been ancient mounds, he said.Bradley said he also seen the mounds in Illinois and the Ohio Valley and they do not resemble the Anoka mounds.
Yet, Bradley admits that no excavations of the largest Anoka mound or any of the smaller ones have ever been conducted.

Korean War Educator: Topics - Distinguished Flying Cross U.S. Air Force - Korean War, 19 June 2012 [cached]
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to First Lieutenant Lyle R. Bradley (MCSN: 0-37371), United States Marine Corps, for heroism while participating in aerial flight against the enemy while serving as a pilot attached to a Marine Fighter Squadron in Korea. On 29 May 1951, First Lieutenant Bradley took off from an advanced air base on a special strike called to neutralize the enemy railroad marshalling yard at Sariwon. With his division, Lieutenant Bradley flew deep into North Korea to this enemy stronghold. Upon reaching the objective the flight was subjected to extremely intense and accurate anti-aircraft fire. Lieutenant Bradley, with complete disregard for his own personal safety, pressed home his bombing attack and materially contributed to the success of the assigned mission. As a result of this attack the marshalling yard, four locomotives, and numerous railroad cars were severely damaged. First Lieutenant Bradley's skillful flying and his fearless devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
