24 August 2015 – Migration Update

Solid but not spectacular night of migration last night.

As we climb the shoulder of the peak of shorebird migration there were an incredible number of peeps out on Sauvie Island this weekend – i estimated over 2500.  Sturgeon lake was low at slack tide and the middle exposed flats were just covered in peeps.  Not really sure what they were exactly as they were into the sun and a long way out.

Warblers numbers are also picking up.

So here it is, your moment of zen.
