Is that Dickcissel perched on a hemp plant?

Great set, very sharp and super nice color. These birds don't like us up here.

He's pretty high on it...whatever that plant is. ;)

Very nice set. Do the Sandhill cranes stay there through out the summer? If so I would like to drive over and try my luck at shooting them sometime.
Since Squaw Creek was developed it has pulled waterfowl and many other birds from my area until our fall flyway is nonexistent , few waterfowl pass by me now that used to go to Swan Lake. I've been told they now go to Squaw Creek instead. You seemed to have enjoyed your time there and came away with some very nice photos.

Thanks! I was taken aback by the presence of these two Sandhills at Squaw Creek. I don't have any answer as to what they're doing in NW Missouri in July. I'm pretty sure they were the only two in the whole place. A local guy had spotted them and flagged me down (because I had a big lens) and took me to them. I was very grateful for that!

I've not yet been to Swan Lake NWR. I've been contemplating an extended weekend camp trip to Pershing S.P.

Very good set. The Dickcissel is a new bird to me.
