Thousands Of Adorable Songbirds Will Be Making Their Way Through Virginia This Spring
Spring in Virginia is the season of transition. Not only are we moving away from the shorter, darker days of winter, but we’re also welcoming some new creatures into our backyards. From tiny peeper frogs to hummingbirds, butterflies, and even cicadas, Virginia experiences many seasonal migrations. Add to that list the beautiful songbird known as the neotropical warbler. While many of these traveling birds prefer to migrate at night, they do make their presence known throughout the day with beautiful songs. Here’s how you can prepare for this special migration that’s already begun here in Virginia.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
