April is a great time for bird watching! All kinds of waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, warblers, orioles, and other neat birds* are coming back to Massachusetts from wherever they migrated to last fall.
If you've ever wondered how and why birds migrate, read The Basics Of Bird Migration on the All About Birds website. You can also check out live migration maps through BirdCast, read the new book Flight Paths: How a Passionate and Quirky Group of Pioneering Scientists Solved the Mystery of Bird Migration, take a deep dive into a specific bird species' behavior by reading its entry in the Birds of the World database, or thumb/swipe through an issue of Birds & Blooms.
We hope you enjoy this bird-themed puzzle!
* The phrase "neat birds" is, of course, redundant. All birds are neat.
