Clarinda, love your pelican pics. They are so entertaining to watch, plus beautiful.

It's Bird ID time at the Flyway!  Group of smallish songbirds stopped at the BE's favorite dead branch while the BEs were away. I thought maybe purple martins, but no. What do you think?

Then, a different kind of geese, I think Greater White-Fronted Geese. Agree?

STBl--  The small birds are tree swallows.  That's according to JT on the Explore chat.  I don't know what JT 's background is but he/she is excellent with bird or prey IDs.

Ginger, thanks for sharing the bird ID info from Explore. Tree Swallows, eh?

Nice color in sunrise today. Isn't it great to hear the sandhill cranes again?

Sorry missed your question. 

EASTER MORNING - TURKEY VULTURES IN MARSHALL, MO

I've been watching the reactivated Turkey Vulture site.  They are my absolute favorite bird.  Male and female were there this morning, making depression in hay for nest.  Hope they stay.  https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/missouri-turkey-vultures/

Clarinda, my questions were just chit-chat, no need for response.
Thanks for the link to the MO turkey vulture site.

Does anyone know what these are??  The one on the left was blowing around too much and put it's other foot down.

Nora, it's a pair of green-winged teal. Or at least a male on the left with the rusty & green head. Compare to my pic from 7 AM today.

Grand assortment of ducks this morning. Gadwalls, Northern Shovelers, others I didn't catch up close.

Overcast and wet at the Flyway. Good time for pics.

The large white one had me stumped until I rewound to movement!
