Good sized flock of American Wigeon feeding this morning. Also called Baldpate for the whiteish stripe on the crown of the males.  Cool duck.

They are so pretty, STL

The sub-adult eagles are like snowflakes -- no two are alike!   ;D

This pair hanging out together most of the day might be the Coopers, but I'm thinking not. They look too young, especially the larger one, probably the female.  What do you-all think?

T40, thanks for the sandhill video from Glen Loyd. His music choices are always enjoyable.

Very hazy early this morning at the Flyway. Can you make out 4 "tiers" of flying birds in the pic? The lowest one that goes all the way across the screen is a flock of pelicans, and the top one is a lone eagle.  Much easier to see on the rewind, in motion!

Beautiful young banded peregrine at the Flyway this afternoon!  See closeup pic of the band -- Too bad, it is not Chance!  Wonder if RRP has a record of this band,  A over T

This could be the same one in pics posted here on OCT 3&4.

Hey, Lisa, it's a Northern Harrier.  Beautiful medium sized raptor, probably a female from what my source describes (brown & streaked below). Adult males are gray above and white below. Used to be called a Marsh Hawk.

Several eagles a bit earlier, too.
