Mind Boggling Migrations

10,000 Penguins

The fall is marked by migrations of mammals and birds in numbers and distances that are simply mind boggling. Fall migration is an awe-inspiring and fascinating phenomenon. Fall migrations in the northern hemisphere coincide with the equally miraculous spring migrations in the southern hemisphere. The online edition of London’s Daily Mail from Oct. 23, 2007 published the article Amazing pictures as 10,000 penguins come to shore to breed with a truly impressive image of 10,000 peguins, part of a 100,000 colony, coming ashore on the island of South Georgia. It’s spring down there in the neighborhood of Antarctica and these penquins are coming together to mate and molt.
