03 April 2015 — PNW Migration Update

A little break in the weather.  Rains subsided and the wind died down.  Conditions look a bit dicey for the next couple of days at least.

Even so, with the respite last night we had a moderate flight last night.  There are still a lot of waterfowl in the area that need to scoot their cloacas north and i suspect the bulk of the radar returns are from them.

New reports: Swainson’s Hawks are showing up on the east side of the Cascades, an influx of Brown-headed Cowbirds and a Yellow Warbler in the Willamette Valley.

Other than that it’s a lot of infill of the early migrants.
