17 Apr 2015 — PNW Migration Update

Yesterday the west side of Sauvie Island WMA opened — i was there at first light and did not take the time to post an update.  Just like the weekends.  Anyway, the migration that night was solid, but on the moderate side.

Unlike last night!  Green doughnut night with some returns in the heavy to extreme range.

Its getting hard to keep up with the migrant influx along the Pacific Flyway. In the Portland area: a whiff of Wilson’s Warbler, a hoard of House Wren, a pulse of Purple Martin, and a mote of MacGillivray’s  Warbler.

It looks like Paul has ironed out the kinks in the national composite radar archive.  So head over to take a look. The Mississippi Flyway, behind the front moving across the country, filled in nicely.  A Cuban invasion of neotrops hit Key West.  And the Pacific Flyway was lit up from San Diego to Seattle.
