Hampden Get Ready for Spring Bird Migration!
Spring Migration for Birds
If you live in Hampden, it’s time to get ready for spring bird migration. With spring just days away, now is the time to start thinking about how to attract them to your yard. Many species will be trickling in over March and April, however, May marks the beginning of the season for our most colorful migrants. Scarlet Tanagers, Yellow Warblers, melodious Wood Thrushes, and a host of other species.
Make sure you are ready to greet them with fresh water and food. The Bird Store and More, in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, offers many ways to attract returning birds to your yard. Birdbaths, seeds, food, and houses will give these travelers rest and nourishment that they are searching for after a long trip. Hampden is home to many of these bird species and you won’t want to miss them. By keeping food and water fresh in your yard many birds will decide to make their homes close by. Your yard can become a gathering place for warblers, orioles, grosbeaks, and other goodies. Look for these colorful visitors in the highest parts of trees, but also around dense cover like thickets. But the real key is waking up early. Most migrants are active just after dawn.
