  1. Fall Migration

    It is that time of year again when birds start moving out and moving into new areas. It is neat to see the hummingbirds stock up on nectar and take off as well as the rose-breasted grosbeaks come through from up North heading to South America. I also like to see the white-throated sparrows, american goldfinches and pine siskins come to Alabama from the North in late Fall and early Winter. Please post when you see a species leave or a new one come into your area because it makes for great discussion on their behavior, what you like about them, what they like to eat, etc. With that said, no species has left or showed up yet but I will keep you posted.
  2. My husband and I want to go birding in the UP. We had been thinking about May 2015 which we thought would be good for the spring migration but some people say it is a little late for that. We could also postpone and go in the Fall and catch the fall migration back over the UP. We really don't want to go before May because it is too cold and so little is open as far as other tourist things like Pictured Rocks. I am trying to strike a balance but I know my husband is a serious bird photographer and so we do want to maximize the birding. What do you think - May or Sept? Or another month? Open to suggestions here.
