Spring bird migration tip #1

What am I witnessing? Remember that many of the birds you are seeing are in the midst of a tremendous journey having traveled 500-2000 miles, averaging 150 miles a night. Many of these birds are passing through on their way to northern New England and Canada. Seeing spring migrants is seeing a tiny slice of a global movement, a truly amazing sight!
