Well, spring migration isn’t over just yet, but it’s really close. There might be one last pulse of migrants with the south winds and warmer weather forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. This morning I had singing Wilson’s and Magnolia Warblers, a female American Redstart, and a Great Crested Flycatcher. I also heard what were probably Alder and Willow Flycatchers calling. I usually keep birding Montrose for the first 10 or 15 days in June for late migrants and stragglers. Who knows, maybe a Fork-tailed Flycatcher or Brown-chested Martin will show up.
