15 Apr 2015 — PNW Migration Update

We have an advancing ridge of high pressure and a retreating trough of low — always a dicey proposition for spring migrants headed north.  There was a bit of movement last night, but it was on the moderate side at best.

Best chatter on the Pacific Flyway listserves comes from the Central Valley where Lazuli Bunting was noted.  Also Yellow-headed Blackbird and Western Flycatcher have made it to the Portland area.

There was some excellent trans-Mexican Gulf migration conditions last night and the flight into Key West was spectacular.  But for some reason i can’t download the file.  Maybe Badbirdz will archive a loop today.
