Are they going away or coming your way? I'm always so fascinated by the migration pattern of our feathered friends.

How glad I am that spring is finally here - yes!

Wow~ Amazing how birds can travel so neatly in one roll :) Beautiful captures :)

mharia said...

wonderful series! the few times I've seen some birds in their flight like that, I never could capture them! :)

Snap Catch said...

great catch! In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west, the people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true… mine’s up too hope you can drop by

Gattina said...

Are they arriving ? I love to see bird groups !

guild-rez said...

Great picture..any idea what kind of birds you photgraphed?
Canada geese fly in formation, but I don't think they are geese.
Happy "Wochenende".

It's nice hearing the birds flying over. I like your yesterday's photo too with the bird crossing the road. Or, at least that's what it looked like it was doing.

Ex-Shammickite said...

Reminds me of the Hitchcock film "The Birds"...........

Craver Vii said...

I don't believe I've ever seen that many. It kinda resembles Frankenstein's stitchwork, doesn't it?

Meggie said...

I'm constantly amazed at all the different variations of sky photos people post on Fridays. Love your bird sky photos, Lilli!

Marcos Santos said...

Migratory birds always give great spectacles

Great shots of birds flying in formation!

Jules said...

Those birds look they are writing messages in the sky - does anyone read bird talk????

Small City Scenes said...

Looks like the Snow Geese are making ribbons in the sky down your way too. MB

Donna said...

Fun Shots Lilli!!!hughugs

alicesg said...

Wow beautiful photos of the birds. I wondered where they are heading. Have a nice weekend. :)

Dancin' Fool said...

Brilliant pictures! I have yet to capture the birds doing this. I hear them coming and run for my camera but then they are gone. Maybe in the sky is the only place you can get this shot!

raf said...

Perfect sky watch photos, Lilli.

Angie said...

A superb sky watch contribution!

Carole said...

Great pics! Look at all those birds.

Paulie said...

Well, whatever direction they were flying, I know they make a lot of noise!

Andrée said...

I'm thinking where are the birds going? Wouldn't California be the ideal spot to winter over? LOL But somehow that gray looks cold to me, perhaps they know best!

Marie said...

Great bird shots!
