April: Little Birds, Long Trips

April is a turning point for migrating birds, and the flow of life through the Chesapeake is heavy. It's the time for spotting some small travelers coming from as far south as Patagonia, at the southern tip of South American. While some stay for the summer, others are here for just a short time as they continue on as far north as British Columbia. John Page shares where to look and what to look for.

Featured in this episode: spotted sandpiper (Actitis macularia), greater yellowlegs (Totanus melanoleucus), prothonotary warbler (Prothonotaria citrea).

Please rate and review, it really helps us to spread these seasonal stories to new listeners.
