2014 Fall Migration Update

Well, it had to happen some time.  The blog is running out of free disk space.  So, posting from now on will be sparse and limited to a few Choice snapshots of each season.

Like last night and this morning.  Excellent migrant bloom sustained throughout the night, with tracks up into the Puget trough.  And — as a bonus — at 13:30 UTC (06:30 PDT) for four frames there can be seen the morning exodus of the swallow roost on the border of Yamhill and Marion Counties.  It last for about four to six frames and the density is impressive.  (Click on the thumbnail below to bring up a larger animated .gif file)
