We're mere days from April and this is definitely a time I would expect to see our winter species moving off. I think the Juncos are among those that made the move. I have not seen any of them in recent days. That's not entirely conclusive, and with my history I would hardly be surprised if one shows up tomorrow to prove me wrong! In any case, the photo period trigger should be motivating all of them -- Yellow Rumped Warblers, Hermit Thrush, and White Throated Sparrows to return to their summer grounds. And besides, we need to make room for the Catbirds! (I expect them any day now).
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
