Sneak Peek at Spring Migrating Birds

The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming, and the birds are on their way! Spring migration has started and our Spring Birding Weekend is nearly here.


Whether you are an avid birder or just wanted to learn about how to bird watch, this event is a perfect time to get together with other bird lovers and see some pretty amazing birds.

Many brightly colored birds use the Mississippi Flyway as their migration path and may be seen at Tara in early spring. From ruby-throated hummingbirds, indigo buntings, painted buntings, northern parulas, prothonotary warblers, and blue grosbeaks, you’re sure to see something special during the weekend.

Here is a sneak peek at what some of these birds look like and when they were seen in the last two years at Tara (for full list click here):
