Backyard Almanac: "Quiet August"

The arrival of August means the sounds of summertime are continually growing quieter.

Larry Weber recounted a family of hummingbirds that returned again and again to his feeder recently, but they'll be moving on by the end of the month. In a short time Hawk Ridge begins to keep their count of migratory birds heading south. And if they're not moving on, the birds are at least keeping quiet. Most songbirds are no longer singing with much frequency.

But not all is silent. Young coyotes are beginning to make some noise. They're starting to join in with the adults during their midnight calls.
