Pelicans, a few cormorants, and an eagle

The numbers are really increasing this time of year.  Love how the cormorants like to hang out with the pelicans.  I think it has to do with feeding habits.  Maybe they kind of help each other.

Very pretty sunrise this morning on the Flyway, along with some eagles and very curious cranes







Pic is blurry, but this youngster went after the older SA

Colorful sunrise brought to you by western wildfires!  Funny interactions between eagles and sandhill cranes.  There was a little standoff with the cranes kind of trying to get the eagles to fly away. They didn't.  Eagles = 1  Cranes = 0

Be safe wherever you are, and Be kind to one another.

Lisa, I was admiring the same eagle!  They go through such interesting color changes as they mature, eyes, beaks, feathers.

The Cam ops did an awesome job following this young eagle around while soaring.  At one point, his feet touch the water, but came up with empty talons.
