A Morning at Oahe Dam, in the Marina
April 23, 2013
Stanley County

Double-crested Cormorant flew by up close, couldn't resist the shot.

Common Loons are common here now.
I've counted up to 30 in the tailrace and marina.


Osprey showed up in numbers today, and they are hungry.
Good thing SD Game Fish and Parks stocked some trout.

What you looking at?

American White Pelicans preening

A White-faced Ibis has been feeding in the wetland just north of the Fisheries Center, Highway 1806.
Sometimes it is very close to the road, this morning in ice.
