Migration


I woke up the other day to find a flock of migrating blackbirds taking a rest in my backyard and the yard across the street. They were quite timid though. As soon as I brought my camera out, they flew away. Hope they make it to their final destination!

Are you sure it isn't the set for Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds?

We have robins that migrate through and I will be looking for them... In March, the big migration from South American come in to their first port of stop at Dauphin Island in our area... lots of birders will be there for photos.

I'll bet they were noisy! The robins usually come through here at the end of February or early March.

Nice collage! Maybe they heard on the "bird vine" about your bird feeder?

Nice shots though. We have line full and trees full of these black birds mostly by the river or around dairy barns. Pretty neat.

BTW: That is the morning sun on my blog. rising through the fog. It sure looks like the moon. MB

You caught them just in time... camera shy?

There were actually way more birds than any of these pictures show. They were covering the lawn in my back yard and the lawn in the neighbors across the street. They were really sensitive to movement though and they all flew away or into the trees when I tried to catch them in the backyard.

They're not the prettiest birds, but seeing so many was quite impressive.

Don't stand under them! HA

It's very cool seeing large flocks of birds isn't it? It looks like you have a fruiting Blackbird Tree!

Randy said...

Wow that is awesome I can only imagine the sound of all of them.

I only visited Toronto but I loved it. So clean and nice and cosmopolitan--people of all nationalities. I hope you're very happy there.
