August - Who Will Fly By?
Project Feeder Watch ended in
April. After several years of compiling statistics, we are
confident that we can predict which species of birds will come
to our feeders each month. The most common native birds
you will see in August are Mourning Doves and American Goldfinches.
Purple Martins are on the grounds of Lakeside
Nature Center, though they aren't feeder birds. While they
are not birds,
Eastern Cottontail Rabbits,
Eastern Gray Squirrels,
Opossums enjoy the seeds at our feeders and slake
their thirst at the stream.
You'll see lots of hummingbirds
preparing for their migration to Brazil. The first of the
winter birds has appeared -- the White-breasted Nuthatch.
You can find
out who's at the feeder all year long at the Nature Center by
