Fun Friday Finds: Time to Fly?

By Sharon Parker

Have you noticed the geese flying overhead lately, loudly discussing their travel plans, practicing their vee formation?

Warblers are on the move now, too, passing through the Twin Cities from their summer homes up north, snapping up backyard insects and grabbing a few bites at our bird feeders before they move on.

The hummingbirds are filling up on nectar and the monarch butterflies cluster around the late summer flowers, charging their batteries, getting ready to fly to Mexico.

Safe travels, little friends! We'll be here when you return.

These selections from Minnesota Etsy shops evoke the spirit of the fall migration; perhaps you'll find an item or two to nurture your own wanderlust.
