Sheila’s Birding Notes for August,
Fewer songs are heard as most birds have finished nesting. Common nighthawks continue to feed in the skies at dusk. Resident wood duck populations are at their peak with all ages of young present. Some migration is underway with a few black terns, warlbers, and shorebirds such as greater yellowlegs and spotted sandpiper passing through. A variety of swallows and Eastern kingbirds fly overhead in their flocks later in the month.
