My thanks for the Caspian Tern id as well Izzy; that one was puzzling me!

What kind of duck is the smaller that was preening on the log with a female mallard about 1:00 this afternoon? Two views, one frontal and one rear.

And a very gorgeous young bald eagle, who just might be walking on water!

It looks like a female mallard. See the pic in this field guide:

The bigger duck is a female mallard, on the right in the pic (reposted). It's the much smaller duck on the left that has me stumped.  Perhaps gadwall. What do you experts think?

Loved the sunrise color today.

Does the Flyway cam remain on for the rest of the summer?

The duck in question is a merganser, a young one!

The cam will stay on-we may have one day off later this month or next for cam cleaning, but we are here for the fall migration!

You're welcome Lisa!

Not only will the cam stay on, so will our chat-MWF 11-2ish, river time!  Hope to see you all there! 8)

Hallelujah!!  Going cold turkey on camera streaming was already building stress in my lifestyle.  Hoping the same holds for the GSB cam too.  Thanks izzy for the reassurance!

Izzy, great news that the Flyway cam stays turned on. I remember that from past years, now that you mention it!   Fall migration is a really big deal here.  Plus we won't be so deprived of seeing eagles while Decorah and DNN are down.

Here's an art-shot of a water lily, and a ballet class pic for your afternoon enjoyment.  Thanks to the cam ops of the Flyway!

The birds are massing at the Flyway for migration. So interesting to watch the interactions. Love the closeups of insects and flowers, too.

Spectacular sunrise this morning. Here's a pic from the Flyway and one from the GSB cam.

Lori, the peregrine visitor at the Flyway spent most of the afternoon catching and eating a blue-winged teal.  Great viewing on the rewind from about 1:00 to almost 4:00! I was surprised that it could fly, its gullet was so full.

See next pics for the duck that was lunch.
