Late Migrating Birds in Nova Scotia

October 29, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I've captured a few of the late migrants of our Nova Scotia nesting species of birds. The transient birds from the west will continue to arrive into November and mostly die in December from hypothermia and starvation. Some tougher species can survive the winter with our help. Last winter we helped an Orange-crowned Warbler survive the winter and most winters we have Grey Catbirds that successfully overwinter with help from multi-flora rose berries and suet.
