We know many of you read that title thinking that we might be getting a wee bit ahead of ourselves with all of this migration talk. Given that we are not even halfway through the month of August, many of us are still happily enjoying the summer.
That said, the reality of this time of year is that migration is certainly upon us!
While most of us think of migration simply as a coming or going of certain bird species (you are kind of right!), there is a lot more to it than just that.
While many species do come and go here in the Ottawa area, many are also passing through from northern locales – making it a very special time of the year indeed.
With all of this activity going on and the eventual influx of activity scheduled for the coming weeks, many of the visitors we get in the store ask us what they can do to aid their birds while either on their way south or busy preparing to depart.
