MIGRATION #1-16 | 14 Images
All of the birds in this portfolio were photographed in April 2019 on the Texas Gulf Coast South of Galvaston.  Neotropical migrants from central and South America arrive along the Upper Texas Gulf Coast in early March to mid May after an 18 hour flight over the Gulf of Mexico.  They put down to refuel and take on fresh water before their nightly flight continues on to nesting in the forests of Eastern North America.  Please go to houstonaudubon.org for more information.
