I'm a huge bird lover and I think this is the coolest thing ever. Millions and millions of birds are now on the move across the United States as part of a migration.

These millions and million of birds are basically heading for the tropics where they will spend the entire winter. (smart birds)

According to mlive.com:

BirdCast uses weather surveillance radar to predict and track seasonal bird migrations, producing migration forecast maps as well as real-time analysis maps that show the intensities of actual nocturnal bird migration.

As an avid bird watcher, I would love to see millions and millions of birds flying high in the sky as they head for the tropics.

I've always been fascinated by all kinds of birds. This fascination of mine began years ago when I watched Alfred Hitchcock's " The Birds" movie. Take a look!

"The Birds" movie came out in 1963 and scared me half to death. I was only seven years old when I watched this Alfred Hitchcock thriller. At that time I thought all birds were mean.

And then what about the movie called "The Birdman of Alcatraz?" This movie is a true story about one man and his birds. It came out in 1962 and starred Burt Lancaster. Take a look at the trailer!

So whenever I see birds on the move in the sky above, I always think of these two classic movies.

It's time to get out your binoculars if you're a true bird watcher and look high in the sky for these fascinating creatures and wave goodbye as they head south for winter.

This from mlive.com:

What does this mean for you? If you’re interested in seeing birds that aren’t normally in your backyard, including songbirds, waterfowl, shorebirds and birds of prey, now is a great time to break out your binoculars. Many birders and bird photographers use BirdCast to inform their migration-season birdwatching, as high-migration nights typically mean increased opportunities to see novel birds over the following days.
