Reelfoot Lake and the land along the Mississippi levee are favorite places to go for bird-watching. While some birds live there year-round, others migrate in and out at various times of the year, so you never know what you’re going to see. Here are some which were spotted between January and April.

Beautiful array of birds.
You have quite a selection here Rebecca. All the geese overhead and in the field must have been a sight to see. I like your quote in this post as well.
Thanks, Linda. The snow geese are here in January and early February. The sight and sound when they get stirred up and all lift off the ground at the same time is unforgettable.
I always like seeing the snow geese in your photos Rebecca. They remind me of the sand hill crane migration in Nebraska the fellow blogger wrote about which is happening right now. I read in a Wild Birds Unlimited Facebook post today that Michigan has 10,000 birds passing through today/tonight. I will send you a nationwide bird migration map in a separate comment. It was the first time I knew of such a map. Look up in the sky!
Here is the link to the nationwide migration map Rebecca.
Thanks for sharing this, Linda. Wow! Who knew? It looks like a very busy time of the year for the birds.
You’re welcome – I thought you’d find it interesting. I was amazed too Rebecca. I knew they left in the Fall around the same time, but I thought they likely returned in stages.
Wonderful shot 🙂😊
Thank you! 🙂
You are welcome stay blessed ❣️
