Changing of the birds

Sue Hokanson, Quartz Mountain Nature Park

March 12, 2014

The month of March brings a lot of change to Quartz Mountain Nature Park. Winter visitors such as Bald Eagles, White Pelicans, White-Crowned and White-Throated Sparrows depart for their summer ranges to our north. Spring-Summer visitors like Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds, Turkey Vultures and last but not least, Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers will be returning from their tropical winter homes.
