This video is a recording of a gathering of birds in December in Virginia. I was surprised by the number and presence. In the video is my son Jack, exclaiming that I should stop capturing this beauty of nature. It’s at a 7 eleven in Waynesboro, VA along Rosser Avenue.

“Birds migrate to move from areas of low or decreasing resources to areas of high or increasing resources. The two primary resources being sought are food and nesting locations.  Birds that nest in the Northern Hemisphere tend to migrate northward in the spring to take advantage of burgeoning insect populations, budding plants and an abundance of nesting locations. As winter approaches and the availability of insects and other food drops, the birds move south again. Escaping the cold is a motivating factor but many species, including hummingbirds, can withstand freezing temperatures as long as an adequate supply of food is available.” – The Basics of Bird Migration: How, Why, and Where | All About Birds from https://www.allaboutbirds.org/the-basics-how-why-and-where-of-bird-migration/
