Migration Express....

Every morning brings new birds to our lovely peninsula and just keeping up is getting to be a challenge. Warblers are beginning to arrive but they don't hit their peak for another week or so. It's time to crack open those bird guides and catch up on your auditory skills! The migratory express is here!
Tree swallows are here....so are barn swallows, towhees and great crested flycatchers....
Eastern phoebes are setting up nesting already and can be heard calling in many neighborhoods...watch for their bobbing tail if you are unsure of which bird you are seeing...and if you hear their scratchy Fee-bee call you'll know for sure.

Hummingbirds are here...can orioles be far behind?

What migratory birds are you still waiting for?
