Well, it’s May and the promise of a migrant filled April has come and gone. I’ve heard some tricklings from the panhandle and Gulf coast areas that they’ve had some good days, but here on the Space Coast it’s been a bust migration again (at least from my point of view). I realize some of this is my own limitations. I only get out once a week for any focused birding. However, even with that restriction I’ve had much more success in years past than this spring. Coming after such a quiet and disappointing fall migration, it’s a bit disheartening.
If I can manage some trips north this year, I look forward to seeing some of the birds that passed over my area this spring, and it’s usually a good thing to travel. We’ll see what the summer brings.
