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.  Contributor Iñigui was in  Sisál, Yucatán when he happened upon a flock of flamingoes.  The drone video he took from this encounter is truly memorable.

Bird Migrants in Latvia's Wetlands

Eaglewood Films

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.

'For L R P' Aerial Music Video

EarthPropeller

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.  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.  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.
