Migration Time!


As of this post on March 30, the indigo buntings are about a week away from migrating north



Bunting banterings:


These gorgeous little birds that resemble a flicker of the bluest blue sky, migrate at night, guided by the stars.

Is that cool or what?

Now, if astrophysicists are wrong, forget what else I'm about to add. But if they are right, here is another scenario worth pondering:
The very atoms that make up every part of us, including the air we breathe, have been around since about 300 million years
after the Big Bang. That means that atoms have been "migrating" and altering their "charge" for billions of years
and that some of the same atoms from long burned-out stars are in the very buntings that then rely on those stars for navigational lights.

And you thought they were just another pretty bird...
