Spring Migrants: Where do They Go?

Course number : 6542   
« back to classes page

With the arrival of spring, many of our most colorful birds arrive in the Sierra from the Neotropics including a host of warblers, grosbeaks, tanagers, and orioles. We’ll focus on field identification of these “avian butterflies” and how to tell them apart, including the females, which aren’t as colorful. We’ll also cover the wintering range and habitats of these birds when they go south of our region. Local habits and habitats of these birds will be discussed, as they offer useful clues to accurate field identification, as will their typical songs and calls that may blend confusingly during the dawn chorus.
