This is true, but I like late September for birds also (peak of Fall migration around her). ABA stands for American Birding Association…quintessential Birders group…up there with Audubon if you ask me…not as heavily conservation oriented as Audubon and Cornell Ornithology Lab now.

Is it a blessing or a curse that May only comes once a year? For many birders, it’s the single month we most live for as migrant birds pour across the landscape, buds burst into leaf and flower, and the air is sweet with both fragrance and birdsong. But all that activity can leave one exhausted, especially trying to fit in all the non-birding obligations one has to fit in somewhere. June can almost seem a relief!
