Getting Ready to Fly.

This is the migratory season for many birds. There are several who have stopped at our feeder to stock up before they start their journey south.

Here are three little sparrows on the feeder and a fourth one waiting below.
These little birds were visiting our feeder all through the day. Soon they will start their travels to as far away as the Gulf Coast or the north of Mexico.

    I was standing on the coast at Bloody Foreland the other day and I saw a line of white birds (geese maybe) fly off in a line away from the land. They were too far away for me to see what they were but the certainly looked like they were “off”. I wonder if they were flying south to continental Europe or west to the Americas. It made me feel sad, that they were leaving and autumn was here.

      Possibly off to Europe but crossing the Atlantic is not as likely. Here we have birds that cross the Caribbean but i have never heard of crossing the Atlantic. I agree it sad to see them go and know that autumn is here.

    We know it happens every year, we never really give it much thought but migration is one of the most striking examples of Earth’s taking care of its own. Thank you for sharing these images of the little guys in preparation.
