May in the northeast of North America is magical. Common species returning from wintering areas to the south add color and sound to what had been a bleaker birdscape during winter. But it also happens in a rush -- a tidal wave of birds. It starts with early birds like this Red-winged Blackbird and culminates with warblers and shorebirds. Our Point Pelee & Algonquin tour hits the migration roughly at its peak, when everything is moving through!
