Pat Shingleton: "Tweet-Tweet..."
Earth Gauge suggests that highs, lows and frontal passages compliment the movement of migratory birds. The best time for bird watchers is the day after a cold front passes providing northerly winds, dropping temperatures, rising air pressure and clearing skies. The website eBird offers tips for viewing migratory birds and weather with weekly regional migration forecasts and tips on species for our area. The Gulf Coast and Southeast identify a variety birds for ornithologists including: Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, White-throated Sparrow, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Marsh and House Wren, Tree Swallow, Palm Warbler, Northern Flicker and Brown Creeper. Grab your, "binocs," wait for a cold front, and enjoy some "birding."
