By Adrian Binns | May 25, 2020 |

Kirtland’s Warbler is a major target for many birders. In North America, they are found nearly exclusively in Northern Michigan on their breeding grounds, requiring special effort to see them.

IN THE BACKYARD: Central New Jersey

By Chris Brown | May 17, 2020 |

On March 13, having just wrapped up our tour of Hawai’i, I returned to my home in Central New Jersey, near Trenton, and a state which would soon be one of the hardest hit in the country. “Shelter-in-place” orders came just days later.

By Alex Lamoreaux | May 14, 2020 |

Normally the entire Wildside crew and literally 1000’s of other birders would be gathered along the Lake Erie shoreline for the annual Biggest Week in American Birding festival right now… This year is a bit different though but I’ve been thinking a lot about spring migration in Ohio while I’m here at home editing photos…
