  • Warbler migration starts in August and peaks in September. Yellow Warblers, Black-and-White Warblers, Redstarts, and others are on the move.
  • Second brood of hummingbirds begin to appear at feeders early- to mid-month. Since southbound migration also begins, it's a great time to attract hummingbirds to your yard.

  • Shorebird migration peaks in August. There will be large flocks along the ocean and bay shores.
  • This is a good month to look for wandering Brown Pelicans at or near the ocean.

  • Young Screech Owls often call on August night.
