The countdown is on - get ready for the return of hummingbirds, orioles, grosbeaks, wrens, catbirds, and so much more!

Did you know that over 200 species of North American birds spend their winters in the tropics? Known as Neotropical migrants, this diverse group includes hawks, shorebirds, swifts, swallows, hummingbirds, flycatchers, vireos, wrens, warblers, orioles, grosbeaks, tanagers, and more. Many of these birds migrate through our area. Some will stop for a short rest before continuing north, while others will stay here to breed in the summer. We celebrate their return every spring as they fill our yards and parks with color and song.

We have everything you need to get ready for the return of these migratory birds, from hummingbird and oriole feeders for the backyard visitors, to field guides and binoculars for watching and identifying the many other migrants.

Want to know when to put out your hummingbird & oriole feeders this year and what to feed them? Check out this month's Nature Questions for the latest information!

Migratory birds rely upon multiple habitats to survive, from their tropical wintering grounds, to stopover sites along their journey, to their breeding grounds in the north.

For over eight years now, you have helped protect the wintering grounds of these birds by choosing to drink our certified Bird-Friendly® organic shade-grown coffee from Birds & Beans®. Who knew that helping the birds could taste so good?

Celebrate the return of spring's birds with us this month.
We look forward to seeing you!
