Hummingbirds are here? Now?

In the warmer months of the year, it’s common to see hummingbirds throughout the Upper Delaware River region, brightening our lives with their bejeweled beauty and entertaining us with their feisty behaviors around feeders.

Sullivan County birders—split up into teams of six—tallied 1,326 of these birds, the dark-eyed junco, in the 2017 bird count. The second-most tallied bird in the region that year was the Canada Goose.

The bird census begins

The Audubon Society will hold its annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) December 14 through January 5, gathering data from across North America on bird species to compile a census on our winged friends.
