Transcript Page 13 SOUTHWARD BOUND WHERE ARE THEY GOING?(from the Ft. Worth Audubon Society newsletter) One early fall evening great flocks of chimney swifts soar and circle over the tree tops, the next evening there are only a few of them, in a few more days they have a I I left. Scissortail flycatcatchers seem to be massing, as though gathering forces for their autumnal trek southward. These birds have been with us since early spring. As we watch for fall migrants and the arrival of wintering species, where are these, our summer residents headed? The dickcissel Is one of the first to leave. Although migrants may come through during the fall, most of them will have left the area by the first of September. They will spend the winter in southern Mexico (Michoacan) and east throughout Central America and as far south as Venezuela, the Gulanas, and Columbia. The indigo bunting winters in somewhat the same areas and is abundant in the winter in the Bahamas, Cuba, and Jamaica. The painted bunting, however, while going to Central America (the Yucatan, Cuba, etc.) has large wintering areas in southern Louisiana and throughout central and southern Florida. The scissortaiIs will head for southern Mexico and on down to Panama. Great-crested flycatchers winter in the southern areas of eastern Mexico all the way to Columbia. Northern orioles may be found In the winter in the southern part of Texas, throughout Mexico and In northern South America. The summer tanager migrates to Mexico southward to BraziI for wintering territories. The yellow-breasted chat, which is not evident here after July, may go no farther than South Texas or may proceed to Baja, California, Veracruz, the Yucatan, Guatamala, and Panama. The Black-chlnned hummingbird winters in Mexico (Baja, California across to Tamaulipa: and as far south as Guerrero and Veracruz) while the winter range of the ruby-throats extends as far south as Panama. Chimney swifts spend the season along the upper Amazon river basin. Green herons and little blues spend the winter along the Gulf Coast and in Florida. —Joann Karges are abundant WELCOME TO THE FOLLOWING NEW MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBER *SUBSCRIBERS: Mr. Randall A.
