Bird Migration is in progress. I have shared an excerpt info from Wikipedia to give you a little background on the Migration, but check out the link for complete article. On the map below, I am on the pink line in Texas close to the Gulf of Mexico. My location is good for viewing the birds as they fly over or stop off for awhile to eat. I have shared pics for 5 years now of the different migrants (See my G+ Web Album Gallery). The most favorite migrant for my viewers is the Hummingbird! They usually arrive on August 12 and stay thru October. Last Thanksgiving one showed up after the others were gone. He has stayed all winter. Your photostudy tonight is of this little hummer as of yesterday. He is still here and enjoying all the flowers.
Enjoy and feed your birds!
