I cannot believe that it's already Friday! This week went so quickly and I am STILL getting caught up on website design work. I better get cracking, but first I want to say hello and wish you a wonderful weekend. Welcome to friends and new blog hoppers, too :) Under the pictures and video of the Florida birds is list of social sites where we can connect and a link to my Blog Hops page. Enjoy :)
I'd like to share that this has been one of the most beautiful weeks here in Florida. It rained this morning, but all of the other days were warm and sunny; just a really nice winter in Florida thus far. We spent most of Christmas outside these past two years. Now that we are towards the end of January, the animals and birds are becoming more active. This week's "best" was when all of the robins arrived from the northern states. It was kind of freaky at first (made me think of Hitchcock's movie, THE BIRDS ), yet it was an incredible experience to see all of the robins arriving at once (mostly females). I tried to take a lot of pictures and videos, but only these few came out well enough to post:
Video of the female robin birds flying over the water and in the trees in our back yards. They fly so quickly that I could barely get a good shot, but you can hear how it sounds like an aviary - too cool.
On the first day, there were so many robins chirping that we ran out to see what was going on. They were in our yards and a bunch of them sat in the field across from my house (about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart). The picture below are JUST of one section of that field. It is at least as long as a football field. They landed there after flying all over the neighborhood and you cannot imagine how fascinating it was to see a flock of robin birds walking across the street all day ... they looked like little ducks. Now, it sounds like an Aviary every morning. The sky is filled with their chirping and the waters have families of ducks, cranes, etc. One interesting fact about the robins is that they hang with the barred owls. This summer, a robin couple came to visit each day with one of the barred owls (I guess our yard was part of their daily rounds) ... Of course, the squirrels have been going crazy. They are jumping from tree to tree and run along the yards almost as quickly as the robins. WOW! I haven't spotted any manatee lately, but I am sure they'll be here soon! There have been a few adult woodpeckers.
