PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/20/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2013 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Black-throated Blue Warbler

(Setophaga caerulescens)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: Not also does spring mean the arrival of the breeding season for our resident birds, but it also coincides with the biannual stopover of a special group of species. Every spring and fall we are treated to an additional variety of birds and as the seasons change, migration parades to and fro. This year we have had one of the slower transitions from winter to summer, than I can remember in recent history. The lingering coolness of winter had slowed the northward movement of our migratory birds. Perhaps because the insects they refuel on, were late to emerge as well. The density of the spring migration seems to be more tightly condensed this year, like a traffic jam that just cleared out. The migrants seem to be passing through a more quickly this season, as if they are running behind some biological schedule. With conditions like this, we seem to get big fall out days with a great variety in species and high individual count numbers, but only for a few days before they move on.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Over seventy-five plus species attracted at a single location in central Virginia.
