More Birds!


A flock of Willits flew into a pond a couple of days ago.  They are migrating to the north for their breeding grounds.  I was happy to photograph them.

    1. According to my research, they migrate through your part of the continent on their way north.
      It's a matter of seeking out water to watch for them!

      I'm glad that you liked them!

    1. Your brain is becoming more aware (with each sighting) of the wonders of birds. Glad you liked the photos!

  3. The birds in flight sure look different - beautiful wings with a large span.

    1. When I first saw them, I thought I would never learn how to identify them because they were so plain. But when they extend their wings, I saw the markings and decided that it looked like a "W" and realized I could associate it with the word "willit".
