July 2011 Birding

Sheila’s birding Notes for July,

Sandhill Crane in the Prairies East side April 2011Wading-bird-young-of-the-year leave their nursery sites. The raspy calls of juvenile red-shouldered and red-tailed hawks are heard routinely as they try to convince their parents to continue feedings. Chimney swifts begin to gather in big flocks. Wood storks may congregate in larger numbers in shallow wetlands. A roseate spoonbill or broad-winged hawk could appear as a stray.
