Another beautiful and informative video from Glen Loyd.  That lightning storm was really electrifying,  ;)  and the pelicans transform into something prehistoric when they hunker down.  Thanks, T40!

Here's the fiery sunrise today.

Peregrine sitting on that lumpy log early this afternoon.  Peachy feathers make me think it might be  Zooey.  Later, 2 BEs and 2 Sandhill cranes are having tea together.

Peachy dawn at the Flyway.  Pelicans and cormorants are gathering in large numbers for migration.

Brief look at a duck I don't recognize.  Anyone?  Could be the light that makes a familiar duck look totally different!

Cam Ops got a good long look at an almost-adult BE on a stump this morning, and several different kinds of birds passing by.

Two adult BEs perching on a water-log watching the parade of geese and pelicans, around 6:00 this morning, and after as they stayed for a good while.  It's a busy time at the Flyway as migrating birds gather in huge numbers.

People wading with two large, splashing dogs before noon.

Thanks for the Glen Loyd video.  Great closeups of two kinds of dragonflies, and the eagles, oh my!

Flocks of birds gathering for migration remind me of airport crowds around holidays this summer.

Views of the new camera location and equipment this afternoon.  Where is it in relation to the camera we are used to seeing? And how will the view be different?  Info to come!

September 20, 2022, 6:40pm -- Good to see a new camera.  How's it working out?  Sure looks bright.  I have been gone with COVID for a long while, nice to be back.  Saw that the Turkey Vultures had fledged. Oh Happy Day! 

Thought I heard a Sandhill Crane??  Figured they were gone by now.  Guess not.
