“Rest Stop for Migrators”

Description from Kathryn R: Now is the time of year that we are seeing a variety of migrating birds and butterflies in our yard and birdbath. Hummingbirds are visiting our nectar feeder all day long. Remember to put out fresh water and food for the butterflies and birds that have to travel so far in their migration.

    What a perfect pick reminder of the courage and strength of our feathered friends. It reminded me to refill my feeder. I have 2 hummers for a while now. They may stay through our normally milder winters.

    Great pick! So good to see you bringing awareness to our lovely winged friends – I’m sure they do indeed appreciate all the help with food and water stops, no doubt. Very nice.

    Lovely picks. Our hummingbirds have already left. I’m up north. Our feeder will be full next spring.
    Beautiful picks.

    What an exciting time it must be out your windows! Great to see you back, Kathryn! It seems like the only migrators we really see (& hear) pass through here in RI are the Canada geese & some ducks. Otherwise we just have the winged friends that leave (like our hummers, monarchs, warblers, hawks, blackbirds, goldfinches, robins, I think, to name a bunch) & the ones that stay through the winter (cardinals, chickadees, juncos, owls, blue jays, crows & ravens, English sparrows, woodpeckers, seagulls). I imagine all the warblers from my parents’ home in Downeast Maine take a more inland route south and miss us, going more over SW NH & western Massachusetts toward New Jersey & Pennsylvania, avoiding passage over distances of ocean that the larger geese and ducks, also happy to swim, can manage. It would be awesome to see all their birds passing through. Enjoy your visitors, Kathryn! So good of you to give them a perfect rest stop to recharge!

    Thanks, Liz! Duluth’s Hawk Ridge is a 3 hour+ drive from our home. But even Bald Eagles visit our cottonwoods, along with a few different hawks. Our Great Horned Owl Pairs make our pond their home year after year and nest during the winter.
