Migratory Song Birds
During the spring and fall, migratory song birds make their way from as far north as Canada all the way down to Central and South America. Some birds circumnavigate the Gulf of Mexico, while certain others fly right across it. For those that chose to do the latter, Anahuac is like a launching platform in the fall as they will not stop flying until they reach the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. In the spring, woodlots are seen from miles away as a haven for exhausted little birds that need to rinse the salt off of their bodies, rest, and regain sustenance before continuing their migration.
