For yet another week, rains along the Gulf Coast have kept migrants grounded for much of the week. There was a brief break over the weekend, and some migrants were able to take advantage of it.

Birds on the Move
A handful of species really seemed to take advantage of the break. Thrushes moved into my study site, with Swainson’s Thrushes being most common. I also saw my first Veery of the spring. Other new arrivals ...

Migration Strong in the West
Farther west, most of the birds are still the warblers I have been talking about the past couple of weeks ...

Another spring migration is coming to an end, at least for some of you. For most of the country, there have been clear skies and southerly winds, so many migrants have been able to make a lot of progress north.

This report has me wondering where my catbird is. It has spent the last five or six years here, nesting in the same spot and feeding off of the same food sources. Hope that migration is still going on!!!

Our red wing black bird hasn't returned this year either. Recognizable by an upturn in his wing. We've been watching him for nearly 4 years. I suppose he and his mate moved on because the bay has been FINALLY cleared of the phragmites. Nothing left for them to perch and nest in until the cattails and other plants find their old nitches and fill in again.
I miss him and their call.
