Fall - A Time of Transition

As fall slowly works to overtake summer in Southeast Texas, the bird activity is still plentiful with a lot of transition.  Ruby-throated Hummingbird migration will peak during September.  We will begin to see our winter residents migrate into the area.  Look for Brown Thrashers in the dense understory and at ground feeders where cracked corn is offered.  Pine Warblers will show themselves at suet feeders along with Yellow-rumped Warblers, Orange-crowned Warblers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets.  Native sparrows such as White-thoated, Chipping, Song and White-crowned will visit ground feeders offering millet.  Watch for huge flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Grackles and Great-tailed Grackles flying in the sky.  American Goldfinches begin migrating southward and will begin using feeders in early December.  A few lucky people will get wintering hummingbirds in their yards such as Rufous, Buff-bellied, Calliope and others.  As fall progresses, watch for the different species in your yard, and then come in and let us know what you are seeing.  We look forward to hearing about the birds in your yard!
