(I called them “whirly birds” when I was small. Who can resist throwing handfuls of them into the air to watch them twirl their way to the ground?) Country Dew has a great post on them here. She called them “dibbas.”

another blogger posted a pic of red maple seeds, wondering what they were. that’s the first time i had seen red ones. we called them ‘helicopters’.
Beautiful lighting in this shot. I’ve no first hand experience with them, so I get to pick my favorite term for them, no? 🙂
What a great shot! Thanks for the mention.
Are they really that red? I saw them take off like UFO helicopters maybe for the first time yesterday. Made me laugh out loud! And then wonder, where have I been all my life?
Beautiful. We called them, similarly, “twirlies”.
