This Month in Birding: March 2021

March 25, 2021

It’s the last Thursday in March and that means This Month in Birding. It’s the first of 2021 that can officially, meteorologically, and birdingly, be said to be in spring, even if that spring is tumbling in like an awkward albatross landing. And to this first spring panel of 2021 we welcome three excellent birders Nicole Jackson of Black in National Parks week, Mikko Jimenez of Audubon’s Migratory Bird Initiative, and Ryan Mandelbaum of the Finch Research Network and Birdmodo.
