Project 365/223 – All Fluffed Up

The fall birding migration is on! Now that the temperatures are waning a bit, the birds are on the move southward. Learned something new today. Would you believe there is actually a bird migration forecast? It’s just like the weather forecast where you can watch the waves of birds move on the continent.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology puts out their Bird Cast information and you can watch the progression of the migration as if it was rain.

I had a busy day today with regular life things to do. Hate when life gets in the way of playing, but sometimes duty calls. I did squeeze a little bit of time at a local park and enjoyed the female goldfinch preening. Following, I went into the bush and managed to phish (yes that is an official word) down the Red Eye Vireo twice.

 

Looks like I’m going to be busy birding this weekend, so here’s hoping I find something really cool. Hope you have fun things planned for this weekend. Bella

  1. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is also doing a series of webinars on the All About Birds page on identifying shorebirds, which I need all the help that I can get with them.

    Good luck this weekend! I’ll be birding too, going for shorebirds and falcons on Saturday.
