Birder Recommendation: It's time for more warblers, songbirds and the flycatchers are arriving too - Take woodland and field walks, Hunter's Point, Estivant Pines, Fort Wilkins - There is still raptor activity, just not as heavy now. Check out the harbor and Clyde's Bird Trail ponds for water birds.
