23 October 2015 – PNW Migration Update

The stubborn ridge of high pressure is keeping the local winds out of the north.  but i don’t see that lasting too long as another low pressure system is spinning up out it the Pacific.  You can see this on today’s wind map.

Over all the southern reaches of our area of concern saw the best migration action last night; again, it was concentrated along the flanks of the Cascades and east of the Willamette.  There was a short but heavy flight across the Straight of Juan de Fuca last night as well.

Still haven;t heard of any Swans in the area but the Cranes are on the move in good numbers.  They even were reported in Clackamas County — not a common report by any means.
