Winter is Coming

Hey, there! School is starting up soon, so I figured I should get one last video in to end my vacation well. And, if I may say so myself, it's pretty great. Instead of focusing on a species of bird, this video talks about the upcoming fall migration. Three bird species are introduced in the video - two that lived here during the summer, and are now migrating south, and one that can only be found here during migration. Check the video out! It's packed with information, and the birds are really good-looking.

From now on, I'll be posting much less frequently. I'm hoping to post every weekend, but we'll just have to see.

P.S. At the beginning of the video, you can see a Wilson's Warbler. The singing that you can hear in the background is not from the warbler - it's from a very noisy House Wren that was in the same bush. Just so you know, this is what the call of a Wilson's Warbler would sound like.


Ta-da! I hope you have enjoyed all of the videos and posts I've made for you this summer.

Here are the websites where I got my Western Kingbird information:

And the Swainson's Hawk information:
