CALIFORNIA THRASHERS.

Listen for the thrashers' beautiful song. Look for a bird that has the coloring and shape of a California towhee, but is a bit larger and with a longer tail; the tail is often held an upright angle when the bird is on the ground. Perhaps you will see a thrasher foraging near bushy undergrowth or hear it serenading you from high atop a tree.

BIRDS WITHOUT BORDERS: THE AUDUBON SOCIETY’S MAPPING MIGRACIONES.

There are myriad ways for humanity to experience our connectedness with the natural world, but a new project from the Audubon Society really maps it out. Their new year-long web-based project Mapping Migraciones does something expected — tracing the migration routes of species common to the Americas and offering information, photographs, and audio field recordings on these beautiful feathered creatures. What makes this birding project so special is the profound heart of the idea: overlaying these avian lessons with individual lived experiences of human immigration from those same regions.
