Migration along the Pacific Flyway

     More than 350 species of birds fly though Orange County along the Pacific Flyway from the Bering Strait to South America this time of year. Be on the lookout for migratory species such as white-crowned sparrows, ruby-crowned kinglets and  yellow-rumped warblers. A biologist from Lake Forest reported a Lincoln sparrow in her back yard just the other day.  If you live closer to the foothills watch for dark-eyed juncos and mountain chickadees.
     A clean feeder and birdbath with moving water will give them a place to rest and refuel along their journey.  And please keep cats indoors.
     Tweet this to your friends. 
     Happy birding!
