Shep, it's possible that a bird or two might just hop a barge!  I would guess a seagull might do that.  Pic of a barge with plenty of room on board at almost 1:00 this afternoon.

Barge traffic doesn't seem to disturb the birds.  Birds keep more to the shallows, or just fly away until the barge passes.

Good pic of barge.

Hundreds of migrating birds here again today.  Or still.

Barge traffic resumes on the Big River this morning.  Nice pic, Phyl.

Eagles are having a major gathering in the trees on the little islands in the River across from the GSB nest box bluff.

Check the rewind at about 11:00 AM today.  Several eagles cluster around a large prey item, seems large and white, possibly a swan that got stuck in the ice. Kinda far away, so hard to tell.

Sunrise very colorful today all around the area.  And a large group of eagles on the ice that's forming now.
