Spring bird migrations were excellent this year for any bird lover, and by the time you will be reading this column, will probably be all but done for the year. Iâ€™ve had the Rose-breasted grosbeaks, the Baltimore-orioles, White-throated sparrows and a few others pass through my backyard this spring. This made for some great photography and excellent bird watching. The birds are now pretty well settled in their nesting areas and photography opportunities still abound. The only thing I have to be careful of during nesting season is not to disturb any active nests.
