Shorebirds continue to move through the area. Found in those isolated spots with suitable habitat. I don’t think anything new, that hasn’t been mentioned earlier, has shown up in the area. But i’ve been quite busy with other tasks and i may have missed something.
Take a look at the winds aloft plot and you can see a concentrated low has formed bringing cold air out of the Gulf of Alaska and turning the winds to a more favorable direction for northbound migrants.
Unfortunately there are associated rains and that always dampens determination. But give a bird any break in the weather and they will take advantage of that. I put in the HC plot today so it is easier to pick out the birds from the weather. It looks like they had a few hours of flight before giving up for the night.
If you look again at the winds aloft plot one might surmise a continental scenario: looking good for the Central Flyway, and not so good for the Atlantic. So i put in a snapshot of the National Radar Composite to see if that is how it played out last night.
