Hi
I have recently began bird watching again after an 8 yr hiatus ( life detour)
The world has obviously changed a lot during time past. And I live downtown now. I bought some window feeders and have some chickadees that I trade food for admiration with.
Where can I find detailed, relevant info about the spring migration? There is so much on the internet about everything and I find that sifting through the crap makes me feel defeated and untrusting. And I don't want to feel those things haha
So anyone that can share some knowledgeable knowledge with me, I would be very grateful
Thanks in advance! :D

Thank you so much.
I have started inputting my daily sightings! I don't have a potential paper mess now.
I could articulate in depth how much this has enriched my life. But I am sure you can relate :D
