Migration Update 01 Oct 2014

It’s been a busy month for the migrants.  A huge push of Greater White-fronted Geese last week. Cacklers are back in force and duck numbers are building, some even showing basic plumage. Shorebirds have probably peeked but are still on the move.  Winter sparrows are in as are the Kinglets.  Migrant summer resident breeders have moved out for the most part.  Fall

Last night the high pressure system spinning up off shore drove northerly wind on a relatively clear night and the birds took advantage.
