Spectacular Bird Fall Out on St. George Island

For the past few days, St. George Island has been experiencing an incredible spring “fall out,” bringing a huge number of migrants to the area.  In birding terms, fall out is a mass of birds that is exceptional in both number and diversity that descends on a locale as a result of seasonal or meteorological forces.  More images are found when you click “Read More” below.  This spring fall out is much greater than normal and includes warblers, tanagers, buntings and orioles (to name a few) in full breeding plumage and song.  My husband John has been busy photographing these delightful visitors.
