August is unique. It is such a great month all on its own, it doesn’t need any holidays to make it special. With gardens brimming with vegetables for harvest, warm waters waiting at all our favorite swimming holes, and vacations to sunny spots across the map August is one of the high points of every year. These glorious days of peak summer were made for enjoying life and having carefree fun.
In the wild, August is an exciting time as many young birds take to the skies to test out new wings. After a mid-summer flightless, feather molt, ducks and geese return to the skies. And towards the end of the month, we see many species forming flocks to feed and prepare for the fall migration.
While fall is the main time for bird migration, late summer is prime time for many species of shorebirds to make their move. As such, August is a great time to hit the beaches and watch marshy edges for a dazzling array of shorebirds like yellowlegs, sandpipers, dowitchers, and godwits.
