Every Thanksgiving, I contemplate the ancient and global phenomenon of migration. Since the beginning of time, humans and wildlife have wandered all over the planet in search of hospitable habitat. Migrations are stimulated by the constant change of environmental conditions. When habitats become unfavorable, inhabitants must travel elsewhere.During the fall and winter, certain birds migrate to Orange County because our Mediterranean climate is so comfortable.
Yellow-rumped warblers, white-crowned sparrows, dark-eyed juncos, cedar waxwings, hermit thrush, and American robins are some of the birds that delight us with their presence.
