The views on the Flyway this morning have been awesome, thanks to the Cam Ops

My pic does not do justice (last pic), but at one point there was an eagle chase.  The first eagle in the pic had something in its beak, and then at the point I captured the pic, moved whatever was in its beak to their talons.  It was really something to see.

Lisa, those BEs are acrobats in the air, for sure!  Fall is such a great time at the Flyway.  Thanks to the cam ops!

Several pics from about 9:00 this morning.

Thanks, T40!

I love that Rosieann added the slo-mo, so you could see the movement from beak to talons.

Another good eagle day at the Flyway.  Thousands of migratory birds gathering.

A few morning pics from the Flyway.  An adult was sitting on the log/stump in the water when a juvie joins, then another adult comes flying from above and knocks the juvie off.  A lil territorial battle?

Lisa, great pics. Love the one of looking out above!  A very active day, perfect weather, late afternoon light and great cam ops bring us good photo ops.

Rewind to 3:30PM for closeups of several common snipe feeding amongst the grasses at water's edge.
