Dr. David Aborn
Migratory songbirds are now flooding north across the U.S. border from
their southern wintering grounds. Our Texas-based ornithologist & weather
correspondent, Dr. David Aborn has been providing weekly "Weather Forecasts
for the Birds". He is now ready for your questions about neotropical
migratory songbirds. (Birds that breeds in North America and spend the
winter south of the U.S. border are known as "neotropical migrants". Since
many of these songbird species are in decline, we greet them back from
their long journeys each year with renewed appreciation.)
- Why do so many songbirds fly at night?
- How do they navigate?
- Why are their numbers declining?
- How long does a hummingbird live?
Send your questions about these special songbirds to Dr. Aborn now through
