Purple Martins and other swallows begin congregating at staging grounds before heading south. See thousands of Purple Martins gather at Presque Isle this month.

Orioles are gone by the end of the month.
Monarch Butterflies begin migrating.
Ruby-throated Hummingbird migration peaks late August / early September.
Shorebird migration builds and waterfowl migration starts. Conneaut Harbor in Ohio is a great place for shorebirds, especially in the early morning before beach-goers arrive.
American Goldfinches finish nesting late August.
Month of the spider - their numbers and webs reach peak volume.
