White-faced Ibis, peregrine falcon and prothonotary warbler, yellow-throated warbler, northern parula were reported by A. Kinslow yesterday, I guess it is time to go down again and see what is new.
Eagle Bluffs may be at one of its best shorebird conditions ever and it may continue to get better as the Missouri River drops and allows some water to slowly flow out of the pools.
Not to mention two bald eagle nests near the main road with two and three nestlings standing up in the nests in Pool 5 and Pool 15, respectively.
and others are finding new FOY species today.
