08 Apr 2014 PNW Migration Update

Two in a row.  Clear, calm, with supporting south winds.  Migration is accelerating.  Black-headed Grosbeaks and Orioles are on their way.  Tanagers, Kingbirds and everyone’s favorites – the Empids can’t be far behind.

Another 20+ dBZ night up and down the Pacific Flyway.

Here is Paul’s archived National Radar Composite from yesterday.  From the Rockies eastward migration was shut down except in a few pockets along the Gulf.  With a really nice flight across the FL Straits.  Hope they make it.

Badbirdz has a great update from Florida called Weather and Birds.  Angel & Mariel discuss “Fallout” conditions from the perspective of the birds.  Check it out, it’s worth the read even if you already know everything.

And here are the weather maps (click on any image to bring up a full gallery view)
