19 October 2015 – PNW Migration Update

Moderate flight last night with a large outflow from Clackamas County south early in the flight.  Some inflow, mainly in the east Counties again.

An interesting flight shown on the LGX (Gray’s Harbor) radar last night.  Not a heavy flight but two distinguishable movements.  The first out of the Waatch Valley down to Gray’s Harbor and then later a crossing from Vancouver Island over to Neah Bay, through the Waatch Valley and down to Gray’s Harbor.  I’d be very interested to find out what these flights were composed of.  I suspect a large flight of Geese or Ducks mostly comprised of a single species.  I’ll scan Tweeters tomorrow for clues.

Looking at the Wind Map one would expect limited flight down the Central Flyway given the strong southerly flows.  A quick glance at the National Radar Composite confirms the interaction of weather and migration.

Here it is, your moment of zen:
