Nature Happenings - June

  • June is Perennial Garden Month & National Rivers Month

  • Watch for all birds feeding their young. Baby birds, almost as big as their parents, are seen relentlessly begging for food sometimes very noisily. 

  • Young raptors are flying.

  • House Finch young can be seen at feeders. You may need to add millet to your regular mix for June and July.

  • Hummingbirds continue to nest.

  • Orioles and Grosbeaks are fledging their young and coming to feeders.

  • Most warblers and other migrating songbirds have left the area.

  • Lone mockingbirds can be heard singing, occasionally all night.
