Clarinda,  Nice pic of these birds that tend to flock and feed together.  Looks like the water level is rising and river running fast.  Flooding expected here?

Phyl, yes, the water is running high and fast today.  There were cormorants on that log earlier.  Not a good time to be out in a little sail boat!

Here's a pic of two small wading birds taking refuge from the high water on a sunken log.  Anybody know what kind?

Phyl, what a great photo of the resting muskrat!  One of the eagles' favorite "guests" for dinner.

Pair of mallards this morning might have been on the same log.  Water is quite high again, maybe not at the crest yet.

About 8:00 this morning, a duck preening and resting on the submerged log.  Not sure of ID, but perhaps a female bufflehead.

Phyl, love your pics of the pelican and double crested cormorant pal (I think the black bird behind is a cormorant)

About my pic of brown and white duck -- not a Northern shoveler, see pic.  They are large and have a huge bill and no white cheek patch. 

More pics from AllAboutBirds of the buffleheads -- one an immature male, but would this be the season to see immature ducks at the Flyway?  Buffleheads are very small ducks.  I still think the one I saw is a female bufflehead.
