Colorful dawn views today, and another interesting barge configuration this morning.

The Raptor Resource Project & Explore.org label has disappeared from the live stream here at GSB and also on the Flyway live view.  Just sayin'.

Large barge grouping headed south, through the locks this morning.  Looks high in the water, so perhaps mostly empty, maybe just moving the containers.

There's a peregrine at the nest box this morning!  It's unbanded, adult, very rusty feathers on breast and face.  Eating a small blackish bird, on top of the camera housing.  Also a pair of adult BEs in the brushy trees down the way from the nest box, at noon.

STL, beautiful picture of the swans.  I am guessing that we don't know who the falcon is?

Jaspurr, as far as I know, we don't know the falcon from yesterday.  And this afternoon, there's ice forming on the river, with ducks and geese swimming in the open water and walking on the rest.  No pics.

Chat room for the Flyway has a video posted of BEs pack hunting the ducks trapped in open water with ice all around, might be from the 18th or 19th.  Eagles are so clever about ways to survive.

This afternoon, about 2:30, an adult BE is perched in a treetop very close to the southbound highway under the falcon nest box bluff. Better on the rewind, but see also pics.  Wonder if it is watching for rabbits or squirrels.

Shep, same to you and to all the RRP folks all over the world.  We have many things to be thankful for, especially raptors and the opportunity to watch them.    ;D
