The Mexican state of Yucatan occupies the western part of the Yucatan Peninsula, which it shares with its neighboring state Quintana Roo.  Far from the beaches and resorts of Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, this is rainforest country and it offers an extraordinarily amount of biodiversity.  It's become one of the top eco-tourist destinations ni Mexico.  Contributor Iñigui was in  Sisál, Yucatán when he happened upon a flock of flamingos.  The drone video he took from this encounter is truly memorable.

With some of the world's most pristine wetlands, Latvia becomes a veritable sea of birds during certain months.  The Baltic republic becomes a key stopover point when they fly from north to south in the spring, and again when the pattern reverses itself in the fall.  It's an awesome sight, complementing the stunning natural beauty of this small nation.  Using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone, contributor Eaglewood Films created an amazing video of the seemingly endless stream of migratory birds.

In this mesmerizing video, contributor Burak Buyukbayrakt managed to use a drone to film a rather large group of flamingoes on a glass-smooth body of water near Izmir, the third largest city in Turkey and the largest in its Aegean (western) Region.  Flamingoes are wading birds which are found natively around South America, Africa, and the Middle East.  The aerial footage of these graceful creatures flying over the reflective and glass-smooth water is truly epic!

At Punta San Juan in southern Peru, a nature preserve has been established to study rare birds in an increasingly endangered environment.  The preserve is home to 4,500 birds, some of them quite rare, including the Humboldt Penguin.  Contributor Danielgarate77 used a drone to visually capture the diversity of the bird life in this park.  The reserve is located on Peru's Pacific coastline, roughly equidistant from Peru's two largest cities, Lima and Arequipa.

Pattaya is a medium sized city on the east side of the Gulf of Thailand, not far from the border with Thailand's neighbor Cambodia.  It's the largest city in the Chonburi Province.  Nearby Mapracharn Lake has an enormous population of storks.  Contributor Danny Batchelor flew his DJI Phantom 4 drone over this lake, and was able to capture what appear to be thousands of storks flying over the lake.  Shot on a brilliant day, the storks are so numerous as to appear unreal.

The title of this video says it all; this is definitely truth in advertising.  Contributor Stevenmconroy was flying his DJI Phantom 3 drone in Shell Beach, California when he encountered thousands and thousands (no exaggeration here) of Sooty Shearwater Birds which had migrated all the way from New Zealand.  He says he got as close as he dared to this massive whirwind of wings and beaks, and based on the video that was pretty close indeed!

The Midwestern USA state of Minnesota (also known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes) is ground zero for epic bird migrations in and out of neighboring Canada to the north.  Contributor Tyler Mason was visiting a lake in the northern part of the state in November when he happened upon a group of trumpeter swans taking a break from their southward migration.  His drone footage of what appears to be hundreds of birds on the glass smooth water is spectacular.

For cinematic drone footage of birds flying along a beautiful coastline, this video can't be beat.  Skylight used a drone to capture a flock of seagulls on the coast of Portugal in the area of Alcobaca, which lies about midway down Portugal's Atlantic coastline in the Centro region of the country.  The video starts with an aerial shot of some spectacular rocks along the beach at sunset, and then picks up some stunning shots of the seagulls flying up the coast.

If you turn off the sound, you might think this video by contributor Earth Propeller was a music video for the 80's band A Flock of Seagulls (remember "I Ran"?).  Rather, these white birds flying off the coast of the Netherlands are the stars of this epic music video of the song "For L R P" by the Dutch band the Flying Dutchman.  The first half of the video is some absolutely mesmerizing drone footage of seagulls flapping away over the North Sea.

Trying to follow birds while you're flying FPV is insanely difficult.  It's tough to even find them in your FPV goggles let alone try to track them long enough to capture some decent quality video.  JZFPV was flying his FPV quad in Florida when he came upon a group of pelicans.  As they start to scatter, he's able to keep up with them.  For about 20 seconds starting around :55 and then intermittently, you will see some of the best quad-to-bird FPV footage you'll ever see.

In this video by Drone 5, you'll get a bird's eye look at...birds!  Isla de la Gaviotas is a tiny island in the Rio de la Plata off the shore of Montevideo, Uruguay.  The Rio de la Plata is a gigantic river estuary formed by the Uruguay and Paranha Rivers.  Sitting just a half a kilometer from the mainland, it's a major bird site for birdwatching.  Amongst the bird species to be found on and over the island are the western cattle egret, the magnificent frigatebird, and roughly a dozen others.

While Turkey may be best known for its great cities, mountains, and beaches, it's also home to some of the world's most important wetlands.  The country has over 300 designated wetland areas, more than any country in Europe or western Asia.  These marshy areas perform critical environmental functions, not least as sancturaries for the country's massive bird population.  In this drone video by Secoko, you'll get an aerial view of a flock of flamingoes frolicking in the wetlands of Central Anatolia.

As every drone pilot knows, capturing video footage of flying birds is much easier said than done.  Simply getting them in the view is hard enough, and almost invariably either the drone or the bird (or both) refuses to cooperate.  That's why this video by contributor Murat Turna is so astounding.  He managed to film a huge flock of seagulls flying near Istanbul and created some of the coolest bird footage we've ever seen.  If you doubt the statement, check out the feeding action that starts at about the 4:00 mark(!)

Check out this stunning drone video from Angola, compliments of contributor ArturCarvalho.  It was shot in a bay created by the Mussulo Peninsula, a sand spit that is about 30 km long (around 18 miles).  It's located just to the southwest of the national capital Luanda.  Shot with a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone, the video shows off the almost surreal beauty of this part of the coast of southwestern Africa.  The proverbial "icing on the cake" is the footage of the flamingoes which inhabit the area.

Contributor jesus_tr created this beautiful drone video from one of the most recognized landmarks in İzmir, Turkey's third largest city.  The tower is located in the city's Konak district, the core of its downtown zone.  Standing 25 meters (just over 80 ft.) tall, the tower was completed at the turn of the 20th century to commemorate the silver jubilee of the reigning Ottoman Emperor.  It was a gift from Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm II, who was pursuing a policy of alignment with Turkey.
