We're ready to update this Forum for 2024 as the migrating birds return.

Adult eagles on the perching log this morning.  Could they be the Coopers to sit calmly so close together?  Are the Coopers nesting at the Flyway, does anyone know?

Not sure myself it this is The Coopers.
It's official 2024  Season.

Gulls have returned to the Flyway in recent days.  Today's the first to see lots of American White Pelicans, too.

Little snow at the Flyway, but cold, a reminder that even though the calendar says it's spring, Mother Nature may decide otherwise.

Camera has been on Highlights for several days, but back live this morning.  A sub-adult BE perched for a while on the perfect perching log.

Thanks for the heads-up on "live" action on Flyway.
Not much on Highlight viewing here.  :(

Several eagles perched on the posing log before noon in April stormy conditions.  They were all facing into the wind, like flocks of seagulls tend to do.

Eagles have a great place to perch and pose for the cam ops.

American Avocet on Flyway Cam for last 10 minutes or so.  Pretty bird, breeding age.  Birdbook makes it look rare east of the Missouri.  Glad to see them, as we have before, on the Mississippi.

Avocets are fun to watch as they forage in the shallow water.  Thanks for the heads-up, eburg.

Canada Geese have their goslings out and about here at the Flyway.  A family with 5 goslings are near the fallen log this morning as it's raining.  At a clap of thunder, they quickly huddled together, even without a parent to huddle under.  Watch the video at about 10:15.
