Monthly Summaries of Spring Migrants

June

June, the time for peak nesting activity of many species, is also when we see spring migration cease entirely. However, prior to June 15 migration is still noticeable but it is a time needing much more field work to establish late departure dates of many species. This is certainly a challenge to the birder who must contend with extreme heat, mosquitoes, and thick foliage at this time of year when it is the female birds the non-singers that are still passing through.
