What day is it?

I'm having a hard time remembering what day it is already! Earlier this morning I knew but now time seems to be floating together.
I visited the Farmington Bay Refuge early this morning to see what was there to be seen.  Even at 6am there was a lot of activity. Muskrats eating, Great Blue Herons feeding their young, white pelicans performing their synchronized swimming/fishing activities and a variety of birds serenading the world.

Here's a few of the morning captures to share:

Flocks of white-faced ibis were everywhere - they love the refuge lands at this time of year.

Heron rookery highlighted against early morning sun on Antelope Island,

Early morning sunrise on Antelope Island.

Can't you just imagine riding on the back of this prehistoric being?

Magical light and clouds.

These guys are a riot to watch - squawking, jumping on each other, and all sorts of antics.

Flowers hide between the rushes.

The goofball herons outlined against the FAA dome.

A classic "Welcome Home, Sweetie".

Every group of Canadian geese has one who does the guarding - and she looks mean!

White pelicans highlighted as they play.
