Falling from the Sky

Today I watched flocks of Canada Geese coming back to the Missouri River after feeding in the wheat fields. One of my favorite sights is to watch geese coming in to land. When they need to loose altitude quickly they just turn their bodies sideways or completely over and slip down through the air like leaves falling from the sky, only to right themselves after 20 or 30 feet and continue to glide in to their landing spot.

There's one in every crowd!

I also got a few photos of the resident Bald Eagle pair again.

And a Northern Shrike I was able to pish a bit closer.
