We're one month into spring, but many bird species started their annual northward peregrination during mid-winter. Spring migration runs from late February (waterfowl, cranes, and swallows) through early June, with stragglers including some shorebird, flycatcher, and thrush species. Mid-April is mid-migration, with Neotropical migrant songbirds gaining steam, and FOY (first-of-year) reports coming in daily on state and local email lists and in Facebook groups. Can you identify these middle-of-spring migrants?
