Spring Migration—One Shot at a Time
While the pandemic has limited human travel, it has been great for birds, with less pollution and less cacophony of humans. Let’s explore the birds that wing their way through Kern County.
There are 3 types of migrants in spring:
Our wintering residents leaving for breeding grounds in the far north
Birds just migrating through without stopping for more than a day to refuel on their way to breeding grounds
And lastly birds that arrive on their breeding territory in the variety of habitats in Kern County.
Alison Sheehey has lived in Kern County for 41 years. 22 years in the San Joaquin Valley and 19 years in the Kern River Valley. She is currently the Programs Director for Sequoia ForestKeeper, an advocacy organization protecting the forests and valleys in the southern Sierra Nevada.
