Backyard Almanac: Birds, Bugs, and Bats
The first week of October brought lots of migration and lots of mushrooms.
"Large numbers of sharp-shinned hawks have been coming over this week," says Larry Weber. "They were joined by a lot more broad-winged Hawks than expected." Typically, broad-winged hawks are moving through in bulk in mid-September. It's also a good time for spotting sparrows. Larry is seeing various species just sitting in his backyard.
Mushrooms are also still on the rise. Recently, Larry broke out the ruler to make sure he recorded the stats on some of the taller fungi.
