Forest Birds

Forest Birds

Listen, can you hear them? Birds flock to forests that are near water. You may hear them singing to mark their territory in spring. Summer means feeding a growing family, many by hunting for insects. Fall brings a farewell to catbirds and other migrants, while winter residents like white-throated sparrows and dark-eyed juncos begin to arrive. Seeds and berries become a more important food source through the winter months. Look for busy gold finches and woodpeckers year-round.
