Andrea Jones is the Coastal Programs Director with the National Audubon Society, but her journey toward studying birds and their habitats actually began as a child on the East Coast, where she grew quite a passion for backpacking and camping. Always the outdoor enthusiast, Jones describes the “sky highways” that birds take above North America this time of year. We may take the presence of birds for granted during spring and summer, but in truth, they are constantly traveling in search of proper seasonal habitats. “Birds are part of our lives, whether we think about them all the time or not,” Jones explains. “If we wake up in the morning and it’s quiet outside, you’d know something is terribly wrong.”
