November Nature Happenings
As the holiday season approaches, we want to share some exciting updates and tips for your birdwatching adventures in November! Here's what you can expect this month:
Project Feeder Watch: Don't miss out on the opportunity to participate in Project Feeder Watch, a wonderful initiative that runs until April. For more information and to get involved, visit www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw.
Busy Feeders: Notice a gradual increase in bird activity at your feeders throughout the month. Keep them well-stocked to attract a variety of feathered friends.
Winter Water Source: If there's an early freeze, providing open water is crucial. Consider putting out heated bird baths to ensure our avian friends have access to water during the winter months.
American Goldfinches: We expect the arrival of American Goldfinches! Keep those finch feeders filled to welcome these vibrant visitors.
Wintering Hummingbirds: The number and variety of wintering hummingbirds will start to build along the coast. Keep an eye out for these fascinating creatures and keep your feeder up if you wish to feed them while they overwinter here.
Returning Residents: Resident birds that may have left their home territory will return for the winter season. Enjoy the familiar sights and sounds of our local feathered residents.
Waterfowl Migration: November marks the peak of waterfowl migration. Keep your binoculars handy for some exceptional birdwatching moments.
Meteor Shower: Don't forget to gaze at the night sky during the Leonid meteor shower, which graces us with its beauty in the middle of the month.
