I have been hearing loud noises coming from the sky recently. Today I went out to find out and it was at least 40 birds flying in perfect V-shape heading toward the Bitter lake. Yes, the birds are back! I came to Roswell at the end of January which was too late to see these migratory birds and I have been looking forward to seeing them. I heard that the birds come into the lake close to sunset, so Jimmy and I went to Bitter Lake wildlife refuge to see them flying in.
We watched for a while and the bird traffic seemed to last forever. It was amazing to see birds flying in a V-shape. I have never seen these birds fly and I was impressed to see them take turns to be in different positions in the same V. Also when groups meet, some birds depart the original group and join the new one. Why is that? Because each group flies at a different speed or member birds are cooler in some groups? Or do they ever think? I wanted to stay and watch them but the sun went down and it started to get cold so we left. Next time I am coming back with hot coco and a blanket.
