Great blue heron captures a large, round, flat fish and gobbles it down.  Worth the rewind!

Another beautiful sky this morning.  An adult BE and a sub-adult had some kind of large prey, duck maybe, on one of the sand spits early this morning. Too far away to tell what they were eating, so no pic.  Not competing for the food, so they are not really hungry or perhaps a parent bird with eaglet.

Do we know how many eaglets fledged from the Cooper's nest this year?

I sure wish we did STL!!  But I am pretty confident that there are at least a few fledglings from the various nests, based on what we are seeing.


After the Fledge registration is out, hope to see you all there!

Red sky at daybreak today, apparently there were some strong-ish storms around Decorah.  Some cameras went offline for a while.

Welcome to July at the Flyway.  Sunrise and sunset colors are more beautiful and way safer than fireworks!

Against all odds, Flyway cam is frozen!  :) ;) :( ::)

Big flock of Great egrets feeding in the rain this morning. The closeup pic provides good ID -- tall, all white feathers, yellow bill.

Ginger, the flyway sunrises always amaze me -- such a big sky!  Today, it's pink and red all around.

T40, thanks for the article about swans.  Hummingbirds do a lot of squabbling over territory, too.

Seventeen sandhill cranes against one juvie eagle doesn't seem fair.  Think the juvie has a turtle.

eburg, that was a big bunch of sandhills yesterday.  I didn't get a pic either.
Here's a couple from today.

If you need something to watch on this windy, rainy morning, a mallard hen is shepherding her chicks in the shallows.
