Oh my, Lisa, those sub-adults are gorgeous with all their white finery.

FYI, at the Missouri Turkey Vultures nest in the barn, one of the eggs hatched this morning. The parents have been conversing about their new arrival.  Hmm, I think there's a Forum for these birds, but I forget where; must search the index.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone.  The turtles are ready for the parade to begin!

FYI, the Turkey Vulture cam site is under the Other Raptors tab.

Rewind to about 2 PM for male mystery duck at rest. What duck has an iridescent dark blue head? With a narrow ring at the base of the neck?  And a gray bill?  I think of mallards but they have green heads.  Found a source online that says mallard heads might be also shiny purple or Prussian blue.  So, probably a mallard.  Perhaps it is changing to non-breeding plumage, or an effect of the light or what it has been eating.

Hey' y'all, I don't have a screenshot yet, but we have a hatch at GSB! ;D

Couple views of a sub-adult early this morning.  Any of these pics would make great jigsaw puzzles.  Please let us know if you make one.  My picture quality is not good enough for enlargements, too bad.    Ooooh, what a good idea for ATF auction!

T40 - Thanks for the video links.  I love watching the Blue Angels practice.  We just had them here at the end of last month for the Naval Academy graduation.

Thanks for the video links to Blue Angels flying. Spectacular.  Anyone know why they are at the small-ish Flyway airport in mid-June? Is there an air base?

Close up of RWBB.  Dragonflies out and about at this time, too. No pics of them yet.

This weekend is the Deke Slayton Airfest at the LaCrosse Regional Airport.  Apparently, Deke Slayton must be a local boy! (he was one of the original Mercury Seven astronauts)  Should be an interesting show, and if we're lucky our camera operators will let us see it.  Otherwise, you can pay $75 and sit out in the heat and bugs and see it live!  :D ;D ;) :)
