Where to Bird this Month: May
It doesn’t get any better than this. This is what Rochesterians live for! In fact, more species are reported in May than in any other month. On average 55 new species arrive, and 238 are seen overall this month. The spring migration reaches its peak by the second weekend in May, nearly 30 species of warblers arrive in the woods, Bobolink arrive in the fields, and shorebirds continue to stop at wet spots in the fields.
