Red sky on the Flyway, turtles waiting for flies.  Juvenile pelicans (dark head feathers) are all over this time of year.  Great white egret on the hunt for lunch.

Another reddish, brassy sunrise at the Flyway.

Brilliant color for sunrise today.  Also sandhill cranes in abundance.  I love listening to their calls.

Just so we keep in mind the size of pelicans, here's a pic with a BE this morning.

What kind of duck is this with the turtle this afternoon, about 2:30PM?  Possibly a female ruddy duck, that's one with a turned-up tail in my reference booklet, but could be a male of some species in non-breeding plumage.

Flyway birds are gathering in bigger flocks this month.

Some rain at the Flyway this morning. The pelicans just make me smile!  American avocets feeding and resting about 11:00.

Looks like a large, dead, critter of some kind washed up on shore.  Could be just junk of some kind also.  Anybody know for sure?

T40, Thanks for the video from Glen Loyd. He's right about the wonderful camera operators at every RRP site, and about the gift from Nature of flying birds.

Sunrises, also on my list of the Best of Life.

Gentle pinkish dawn today.  Couple of BEs having breakfish on a log might be the Coopers.
