20 October 2015 – PNW Migration Update

Well, yesterday’s flight along the Washington coast went undocumented on the Washington listserv.  Perhaps today’s heavier flight will garner a comment or two.  But it is the middle of the week and the area is not heavily populated.  Today’s flight along the coast was no doubt aided by the ridge of high pressure that has sneaked in bringing a nice northerly flow – stronger along the coast.

Oregon’s flight last night was anemic but birds are still crossing the Straight in heavy numbers.  The Puget trough and western Cascades in Washington had a decent flight late into the evening.

Well, the first Buffleheads are being reported,  Swans will be next; that’s usually when i shut down for the season.
