Bird Migration in Southern Delaware
Southern coastal Delaware, where I live, is a major bird fly way. Last week as I took my evening walk in the Oyster Rocks development behind me I took this short video of a flock of brown birds trying to rustle up an afternoon meal before settling in trees for the evening roost. Look closely, they're hard to see. Hundreds of small brown birds swirling around the vacant lawns of my neighbors in Oyster Rocks.
This is one of the many reasons why I like living in the Big Sky country of coastal Delaware. Earlier today Bill and I were making our rounds (Walmart, thrift stores), the cold February skies above us were filled with the chatter of the Arctic Snow Geese discussing their impending departure for points North.
When we lived in the crowded suburban sprawl of southeastern Pennsylvania, we rarely if ever witnessed these centuries old seasonal activities of nature.
Just another reason I love living where I live, southern Delaware.
