Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species -- man -- acquired significant power to alter the nature of the world.

Thanks for the info & links about the Blue Angels event in honor of Deke Slayton.  I'm old enough to remember him and the other original astronauts.  Very cool photo!

GSB Great Spirit Bluffs Home of Newman & Zooey & little one...

I mentioned Zooey in my last post, she is the Mom at GSB Falcon Cam.  Today there was a fly over by Blue Angels and in the first pic Miss Zooey is telling those "big birds in the sky" to go away!  As you can see it's quiet now and Zooey and little Eyass are in front of the fan ready for nap time!

LORI,  I just watched the whole Airfest performance.  It was spectacular, the Blue Angels of course were just the best ever.  Thanks so much to the Cam Ops for capturing it all so well.  And we thought the eagles and ducks were fast flyers!  Completely forgot that the peregrine nest box is so nearby.  Hang in there, Zooey & eyeass.

Here's a pic of the Air Fest this afternoon, taken from the camera feed at GSB.  Better view of the airport action,  also the high in the sky part.
Thanks to all the cam ops!!

We were running errands in La Crosse (actually Onalaska where the airport is) during the airshow. On our drive across the river we noticed the side channels were full of boats anchored for the show. At the construction store nearby the Blue Angels were roaring overhead for about an hour. While a $75 ticket or a boat ride would be better for the smaller acrobatic plane performances, those Angels cover a lot of airspace at their speed. We might have watched from our sailboat but I have been delayed by repairs. Next time!

Looking summery at the Flyway: bugs, little birds, wind, flowers.  Just one pic of sandhill cranes feeding.

A small collection of cormorants this morning. Some might be mergansers, too.  Cormorants black, mergansers lighter color -- or vice versa.   :)

Mallard adults are molting at the Flyway. Here's a male bird, looking kinda dowdy.  This stage may be what's called "eclipse plumage" and they may be able to fly. At another time of year, they molt their flight feathers. Help, you duck experts!

Wonder if the camera operators are aware that Air Force One will be arriving at the LaCrosse airport this morning....sometime.

LaCrosse airport might be too short for Air Force One (a 747) so they might land in Madison and then chopper over to LaCrosse on Marine One!  OohRah!   ;) ::)

eburg -- I wondered about Air Force One landing at LaCrosse yesterday also. Did not see on rewind, nor a helicopter, but may have missed that.

This morning, there's a good sized flock of Great Egrets in the trees.
