Mischief in Flight

 

Hi Y’all!

P1150993

 

This time of year is when we see birds passing through on their way to South America or birds who winter here. 

Often the water is packed with birds, all trying to get some fish to eat.

Thousands of birds fly for miles following the fish.

The water is so full I don’t see how they can move.

Diving for dinner.

There is a whirring whooshing sound made by all those wings as they sore past us or prepare to splash down.

Now y’all know what I was contemplating!

Y’all come back now!

  2. Woof! Woof! Oh! with Goose comments in regards to the movie The Birds. We kind a have the same thing here every sunset. Mom gets a bit scared when passing certain trees. I will convince her to video tape it. Anyway, do you know the names of these birds? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  10. How many did you catch, Hawk? I totally would have let my dogs go after them. Then hundreds of birds would have flown into the air and over my head, releasing bird poo bombs. Hm. Maybe leaving them alone was the best choice.

  12. Wow look at that. We used to go to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan every October. I used to love watching the waves and waves of flight ducks passing overhead way up in the sky as they headed south.
