29 Apr 2014 PNW Migration Update

Well, if you saw yesterday’s early evening Alert, then you can very easily guess the content of today’s update.   Yep, “Green Doughnuts” across the region.  Excellent conditions: south winds, clear skies, and a bunch of birds that have been itching to get north.  It doesn’t get much better than this here in the upper left hand corner.
