07 May 2015 — PNW Migration Update

Chilly north winds kept migration to a minimum last night in the metro area.

However a strong river of southerly winds crammed a boat load of birds up the Central and Mississippi Flyways.  I have static images of the Winds Aloft and the National Composite Radar in today’s gallery.  But, head on over to Cameron’s and Paul’s sites to get the dynamic view of this marvelous show.

Well, the Western Wood Pewee and Willow Flycatcher have been ticked.  The former in Clackamas County and the latter in Clark.  So that wraps up this season – well, except for the Common Nighthawk, and it is not detected every year.  With the NAMC this weekend and a scheduled trip to Malheur NWR next week, the only posts i’ll be putting up this season will be if something exceptional takes place.  There’s still plenty of birds to move through so use the links on the side bar to keep in the loop.
