Posted

As many bird watchers know, spring is an incredible time fo the year to go birding. Not only is it warmer outside and the days are a lot longer, but there is a ton of great bird activity going on. This is the time of the year when local birds become more active and migrating birds start to return. You can have the very best pair of bird watching binoculars available, but if you don't know where to catch the activity, you could be missing out. The following is a list of the best places to go bird watching:

  • Migration Flyways- Migrating birds will take similar routes while traveling between their winter grounds and their breeding grounds. It is a good idea to visit birding hot-spots and nature refuges along those migration flyways to view those migrating birds.
  • Parks- The blooming trees and flowers in your local park will attract many species of birds looking for nectar and insects. Parks are also a good place to find woodpeckers and ground-feeding birds because of the fresh grass and rising sap.
  • Open Waterways- As the ice starts to melt and recede in ponds, lakes and rivers, waterfowls will take start to forage. The plants that are newly sprouting next to these waterways will also attract a large variety of smaller speicies. 
  • Tree Lines- If you live in a higher elevation you can catch finches and other songbirds that thrive in high elevation conditions returning to their summer grounds near the tree line. 
  • Your Own Backyard- You can take steps to create a bird friendly environment in your own backyard! Choose flowers like Petunias and Trumpet Honeysuckle to attract hummingbirds. You can also entice local birds with bird houses and nesting materials.
