22 September 2015 – PNW Migration Update

Welcome to Fall.

Birds were jamming last night!  Decent conditions, light northerly winds on a clear night across the Pacific Northwest.

The grand passage of the Greater White-fronted Geese yesterday – wow!  Probably a once in a lifetime experience. From the Portland Basin to the Southern Coast reports came in of GWFG in the thousands passing overhead.  A remarkable event.

Anyway i added the Seattle radar loop today because it was packed with birds and i don’t think i’ve posted one from there this season.  So here it is, your moment of zen:

Oh, look at the RTX loop and see if you can spot the Barn Swallows going to roost,  Starts around 00:00 UTC.
