this spring so far
- Hi Everyone,
There has been a stronger-than-usual push of trans-Gulf migrants coming across the Gulf here in Texas this April, which likely means a less-than-normal parade of songbirds coming into North Florida. Of course, some years it’s reversed, and depending on meteorological conditions, it can change any time.
Just remember that the peak of the songbird (and shorebird) migration is late April, and the vast majority of this season lies ahead. Birding will be strong through the first week of May, and the real yummy species (northern nesters) migrate mostly after April 20. Look for shorebirds and residents early in the day and then the migrants will start arriving.
Good luck to everyone!
