Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 8:58 a.m. Birding on the road? You'd be amazed! The freeway's wide median and mowed shoulders offer birds a ribbon of open grassland, perfect for hunting. Watch especially for raptors perched on poles and bridges. Songbirds favor wire fences and posts. Smaller roads offer hedgerows and shrubs. But this Colima Warbler is one bird you won't see from a paved surface.

Sign up for a field trip at your local Audubon chapter to see what you can see!
