14 September 2015 – PNW Migration Update

We still have a nice weather pallet for migration; light winds mainly out of the north, no rain, and a persistent, but weak, high pressure ridge out in the Pacific.

But, movement is moderate at best here in the Pacific Northwest.  It’s one of those days where i go looking for the hot spots; pull up Paul’s archived image from last night, look for the action, and then pull up the loop from that station.  And that’s how the town of Jacksonville Florida ends up in the tag cloud.

Here it is, your moment of zen:

Yeah, those returns are pushing 40dbz, for a significant amount of the night — MILLIONS of birds on the move.
