This Week in Wyoming Birds: 05/07/2019

Updated: Oct 30, 2019

Each week during migration, I provide a list of birds that are departing and arriving in Wyoming. This list is not exhaustive and only includes species seeing a significant shift in relative occurrence during the week posted. Remember, this represents data for the state as a whole and for the week as a whole. Your local area may experience slightly different dates/birds. For last week's update, click here!

At the end of each article, I will include an abundance animation, provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. (Flocking Edit: You can consider the animation my final bird on the matter. Get it final word/final bird? I will see myself out...)

Without further ado, here is...
