Gulls perching on the posing log, probably Ring-billed gulls.  AllAboutBirds says they are very common in the Flyway area.

Bald eagle perching on the fallen log/tree this morning.  Everyone else went elsewhere!

Turtles back on the fallen log this morning.  At some time after 11:00 AM when the turtles returned to the water, a young raccoon got to the log and took a nap.  It swam away about 12:30.  See pics.

I've always loved the turtles sunning on the log, but surely never saw a raccoon napping there - how cute.  Thanks for the great screen shots, STL!

This was posted on July 22 about the camera.

"UPDATE: the Flyway cam power pole was badly damaged by straight line winds last week and requires new equipment, which will be ordered this week. Unfortunately, we don't expect the cam to be online until mid-August.

Thanks for your patience!"
