11 October 2013 Migration Report

Most of the action was to our north, while the Portland/Vancouver Basin only saw moderate levels of migration last night.  There were some pockets of heavy movement, just not widespread.  However, along the coast and across the Strait, birds were heavily on the move.  Maybe the localized rain dampened local spirits or they may just be happy to hang out for a while and enjoy our hospitality – we’ve got some really great bugs.

Whatever the case, it looks like some upper level instability will be moving into the area 24 to 48 hours out.  Which may disrupt things a bit, but i don’t see any rain and the winds should remain out of the north.  So we’ll see.

Tomorrow starts the weekend and i will be out in the field early.  So updates, if any, will be for archival purposes.
