Happy Birding. Keep a record of what you see. We may all be part of a citizen research group monitoring bird species that migrate over the Gulf of Mexico. Which birds are affected along their migration routes? How widespread is the “oil spill shadow”? We do not know yet.

One Response to Better Birding Thank You

  1. Great job Aunt Donna! Yes, we need to work on your text a little to enhance the visibility against the fall foliage. Some have nearly faded into the background.

    Yesterday evening on the way home from work just at dusk, my path was crossed by an owl flying across the highway. He was about 10 feet away and just above the roof of my car. How cool is that? I figured he had is sight set on something and was intent on getting it!

    About two weeks ago, I heard a screech owl close to home. Have not spotted him yet though. I also have a Cooper’s Hawk who likes to visit my rabbit, Butterbean, pretty regular. He has not gotten any closer than 15 feet of his hutch. I figure he must be pretty young. He did steal a dead Copperhead Snake we acquired, so he’s definitely an opportunist. I had to stop feeding my regular brood of wintering visitors to keep my “opportunist” hungry enough to look elsewhere for food rather than in my yard. Bummer huh?

    To round this out, I saw a wayward seagull flying above the Tennessee River Bridge on I-65 this morning. He was all by himself. I figure he must have blown in with the strong winds last night, but then wondered, well where from? The winds were coming from West. Gulls are usually South or East of us. Unless he’s been wintering on the Mississippi River (?). What do you think?
