Spring begins in four days! But spring migration has been going on for more than a month already and will continue for another two months, depending upon where you live. The experience of spring migration varies a lot across this continent. For those in the South, it means the abundant waterfowl and other more northerly breeders are departing. For those who live in the central tier of states, it means our winter visitors will be heading out while species that winter in the South and breed in the North will be passing through. For those who live in the northern states and Canada, the “snow birds” will be returning. The first birds to get the urge for leaving are, in most cases, those who haven’t traveled too far, including those that spend the winter on this continent, so that’s the focus of this quiz. Can you identify these early migrants?
