Cam ops are bringing close up views of wildflowers in bloom now. Does anyone know this white flower with a pink center?

The last I saw Newman & Zooey was OCT 2. Is it too soon to say they have flown the coop for the winter?

Yes, Shep, I saw the Am. Melody riverboat this morning also, headed the other direction from previous sighting. So against the current is North, correct?

And Newman was perched on a favorite dead limb early morning.

Yep, she was heading north.
I wonder how far north she goes before returning - Minneapolis maybe?

Shep and Lori, Great pics of the banded juvenile at the Flyway this afternoon, and comparison pics from GSB.   It is not Chance, darn.   See  closeup of band ID in my pic.  However, could it be another of the peregrines that RRP banded this summer?
