Migration ideal conditions remain in place and look to continue for a few more days.
Last night birds were again headed south in moderate numbers – heavy in patches, mainly inland. The first of the Buffleheads are being reported but not in any significant numbers. So we’re on the downhill side of peak migration – lots of ducks and late season migrants still in the pipeline. I was in the field yesterday for a bit and most noticeable was the increased numbers of Mudhens and lack of ducks.
This high pressure ridge continues to remain stable. It gets a bit disturbed 36 to 48 hrs out, but not much and looks to rebuild. Should be a glorious weekend with light winds mainly out of the north and clear skies — foggy mornings.
