September still feels like summer in much of the US, but our feathered friends are already itching to head south. Many already are. Millions and millions more birds will take to the skies in the coming days, lured, driven, instinctively by signals telling them it’s time to head for warmer skies and brighter days.
The Cornell Ornithology Lab, a very big deal in the world of birding, has published, and for free, a series of lectures and videos covering everything you’ve ever wondered about bird migration. Until September 22nd, there are free webinars here that you should definitely take advantage of. Understanding a little more about what goes on up there in our beautiful skies deepens our connection with our animal friends and the entire ecosystem.
