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

Terrific series of images Emily, looking great!
You are truly too kind Phil. Thank you so very much and appreciate seeing your sweet face here.
You are really good at squeezing in some good photography! 🙂
Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do right Bente? Thank you so much for being here.
Beautiful captures! 🙂
Thank you so very much!
I love the algae and the butterfly. And of course, bird photos are great, any time. Keep on, having fun.
Isn’t that the craziest algae you’ve ever seen? I’ve never seen that two tone type before. I remember as a child trying to remove algae from our pond. It didn’t work very well. You know..it’s all about play time right?
Well, yes, of course it is. Why we do all the other things, to be able to play. The algae reminded me of the Gulf Coast red tides, bad stuff that algae.
Oh yes..I had heard of the red tides, but never actually saw them. Worked all day today so I can play all day tomorrow. 🙂
Yay for you. I did myself in and will take it easier tomorrow. My legs are letting me know. I still have some “domestic goddess” things left to do, myself.
Oh you poor thing. Hopefully your legs are better by now. After my hike on Wednesday, my hips were complaining. They’re not used to that kind of speed. Let’s keep moving to offset time. 🙂
Very nice indeed
Thank you so much sweet girl. 🙂
Thank you so much!
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.
Have you been watching them? I’ve heard of them, perhaps from you. But too lazy to follow up. Shorebirds are super tough. As bad as juvenile birds. Hope you had a great Saturday.
I wish I could watch them, they are at a bad time for me.
As to my Saturday, I came home with a number of lifers, I’m not sure how many. I have shorebirds to ID, lots of them. I am sure of Bonaparte’s Gull, Wilson’s Phararope, and stilt sandpipers.
Oh I can’t wait to hear what you saw this weekend. What great fun !
Totally bookmarking that site. Much thanks!!
Isn’t that the coolest website ever? Can’t wait to see what you discover in your area.
Appreciate your visit and kind comment B Clemmons
Nice to sneak out, you caught some lovely scenes!
If you and I lived near each other, I can see us sneaking off daily to find picturesque scenes. Wouldn’t that be lovely?
you are getting very good at this….very good indeed 🙂
Coming from you that is a great compliment. You’ve been a follower for over a year now and can see the progression. Getting this kind of feedback from you is priceless. Thank you so very much. Emily
