17 March 2016 – PNW Migration Update

Well, after a week of rain we finally got a clear night.  Birds took flight but in very moderate numbers.  There were a few patches where the density reached the 20 dBZ level but not many.  It’s still early.

In the region: first Violet-green Swallows, Turkey Vultures are increasing, Black-bellied Plovers have been seen and the first reports of returning Osprey.

In the San Diego area the Swainson’s Hawks are staging in Anzo Borego, and the first Pacific Slope Flycatchers are being reported.

Barn Swallows have made it to the Central Valley.
