It has been too long to be away from this blog. Its very interesting how routine becomes your life and when you don't get your daily Lagoon fix, it throws you off! Needless to say I'm looking forward to spending my mornings at the lagoon again and sharing all the beautiful things I photograph. You can expect consistent morning reports from here on out and be sure to tell your friends about it! So come along for the ride...
So much has taken place since I left for South America over three weeks ago. All the migratory birds have left the lagoon to head back to their respective homes. All the different species leave in a matter of a few day. How do they know when to leave??? I asked the same question to Taylor and he said that scientists are not certain. There is a theory that the birds have a different view of the light spectrum when looking at the sun and that when it hits a particular spot on the horizon, that's what triggers them to leave...or the way I imagine it happening;
The 'chief' bird gathers all the other species together in a communal meeting and says...'We've had a good run at this Lagoon, good fish, lots of volunteers, adequate water quality(could be better) but...Its time to take off'
Speaking of taking off check out this bird skimming the water this morning...Can someone identify this bird?
