These birds are doing just what I’ll be doing tonight -flying! Only I’m headed to Victoria Falls, then into Botswana and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. But this image made me think of the ‘other’ type of flying, the wonderful annual migration process that begins in Alaska now, as birds slowly make their way south for the winter. I’ll be waiting for them again this year to visit California NW refuges, all up and down the central valley, celebrating the return of the cranes and the snow geese and ducks by the thousands!
I may not be able to post much on my blog while I’m away, but I will try to post via Instagram as that will be faster/easier. Follow me there !
