Backyard Migration.

Thousands of kilometers under your wings and thousands more to go.  These six species of migratory birds hopped in and out of my raspberry bushes gleaning seeds, spiders, insects and other delicious tidbits. As you will see in the video not all of the ingested food was meant for complete digestion.


You will see in order:

Harris’s Sparrow (my first chance to photograph this species)
Fox Sparrow
Swainson’s Thrush
White-throated Sparrow
White-crowned Sparrow

    I’m thinking it was either a palm warbler or yellow throated vireo I spotted in the raspberry patch from looking at photos.

    Trying to identify a sparrow sized pale grayish wings with white and mostly soft yellow breast in our backyard this week?

    I love the images you capture! I had a female American Redstart outside my kitchen window 2 days ago. I don’t recall having seen one before. I keep my ‘Saskatchewan Birds’ book close by so I can identify them. Cheers
