Learning the Birds of the Río Embudo


Rare Summer Residents (13 Species)

These species are unusual, seen only every 2 to 5 years.

They are migrants. They breed here in the summer, then migrate further south in the Fall to their wintering grounds. Many spend the winter as far as Mexico and Central America. Some spend the winter in South America.

These species begin arriving in early March. Breeding takes place mainly in late May through July. By August, some are beginning to move south. By the end of September, most of them will be gone.
