Why do we always comment on "birds flying south for the winter," but not on "Birds flying north for the summer"?
Are they just noisier when they’re flying south? The geese especially….their cries are a sad, lonely sound heralding the dreaded winter lock down. You don’t associate geese honking with the promise and warmth of spring.
Also, there is another kind of bird who flies north in enormous flocks that can take, literally hours to pass. I don’t remember ever seeing those same birds returning that way in the spring…..
