Migration is in full swing now and has reached all the way to the northern areas of the country. Here in NH, warblers are migrating through and breeding warblers, like this Yellow Warbler, are returning. Rose-breasted Grosbeaks have returned and are visiting feeders. Gray Catbirds are coming to dried mealworms. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds eagerly visit feeders, as not many flowers are blooming yet due to the late spring. Goldfinches are turning from their dull winter plumage into their yellow breeding plumage and visiting feeders and bird baths.
Welcome the birds into your yard with food, bird houses, shelter, bird baths, and enjoy!
