Our island preserves are so important as stop-over habitat for these colorful birds as they make their way north. Our shoreline forests provide cover and those large clouds of midges or Chironomids we see are important food resources. Watch this migration taking place with s or sw winds coming up. These photos are from the Scheeff East Point Preserve during a recent migration event. Thanks to Conservancy board member Ken Farber for sharing!
