Keep your eyes to the skies for swallows… you know what they are, right?
If you subscribe to the maxim that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, you’ve probably been miserable about eating the dregs of last year’s crop as part of your daily health maintenance routine. But nobody needs to gnaw on mealy fruit anymore now that apple season is sweeping the Northern Hemisphere. My family already boxed a bushel and look forward to much more. How do you like them apples?
Fall migration seems to be passing me by, but I’m hoping to scope some passing hawks this weekend. Corey will be attracting rare migrants to his area using both the power of positive thinking and the magic of other people’s observations in the field.
How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday. Also be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!
wonderful photo… we’ve had many flocks of visitors this week.
Cool shot of the swallows! It must be a cool sight to see large flocks of swallows migrating. Happy Birding!
That’s a lot of birds. They look as if they are gathering for a party to begin. Great photo.
Awesome shot. Love all of them together like that.
Those swallows are really packed in tight! Wonderful photo.
Such an amazing signt it is!!
We spend a gray, windy day in Waghausel, Germany. Suggested by Jochen, from Heidelberg, we had one day “free” of family obligations. As in Eastern LI, our home, fall migration has pretty well passed, but we did get to add a few to our life list – Spotted Redshank and Greenshank. We have visited this preserve before, but were delighted to see 27 species. No record breaker, but you know the saying, a bad day birding is still better than….. Just about anything!
