Just outside Lacrosse, Wisconsin, the Mississippi River Flyway is getting crowded. Migrating swans, pelicans, ducks and more water foul than I can name make their way south stopping to rest and feed in the Mississippi backwaters. The numbers and the sounds the birds make as they congregate are impressive to see and hear. Remember the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz? - that's what it sort of reminds me of. This mighty river is looking good, had to capture it in pictures and share it.
