Spring Flowers, Butterflies and Birds

May 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Spring is slow arriving in Nova Scotia. Manitoba is at least a month ahead of us and the lower mainland of British Columbia at least two months ahead of us. But spring does come here, eventually.

Warblers so far include; Magnolia, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Green, Pine, Palm and Black-and-White. I haven't been out in the mornings yet to listen for them but I will soon.

When I used to haunt Point Pelee National Park in early May I would spot or hear 20-30 migrating warbler species while back home it would still be so early that only seven or eight would be on territory. The beauty of it is that when I returned to Nova Scotia in the third week of May I enjoyed the warbler migration experience all over again.
