Costa's Hummingbird

Costa’s Hummingbird

The spring migration is now in full bloom.  Almost all of the usual migrants have shown up, many at my feeders and the rest around the swamp and pond.  This last week saw the first  of season Ash-throated Flycatcher, Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Western-wood Pewee, Swainson’s Thrush and Lazuli Bunting arrive in Jacumba.  These photos are of spring migrants seen in April 2014.  See earlier posts for additional spring migrant pics.
