Learning the Birds of the Río Embudo


Uncommon Transients (13 Species)

These species are present and occasionally seen in suitable habitat during the spring and fall migrations.

They pass through this area, but don't breed here. In the Spring, they are moving north from their wintering grounds enroute to their breeding grounds either further north or higher up in the mountains of New Mexico.

In the Fall, they are passing through on their way back to their wintering grounds. Many spend the winter as far as Mexico and Central America. Some spend the winter in South America.

In the Spring, these species begin arriving in March with the peak of the migration coming around the first week of May. By June, they have all moved on. In the Fall, they begin arriving in August. The migration peaks in September and is essentially finished by the middle of October.
