Bird report: dickcissels, rare hummingbird, what's fledging

NESTS ARE FULL AND FEEDERS SLOW

 

In the bird world, summer is firmly here. Many birds are in the heart of their nesting season -- males singing vigorously to announce their territories while females take up the bulk of duty incubating eggs. By late June many of these nests host tiny,
fast-growing young -- while young from some of our earliest nesting species are already fledging! Dickcissels are having their best year since 2012 and some lucky birders turned in the first Wisconsin record of a hummingbird that typically nests in Texas. Birdfeeders are slow but look for activity to pick up in July.
