09 May 2016 – PNW Migration Update

Light to moderate migration last night.  The high pressure ridge we were watching at the end of last week moved north instead of inland.  That kept the winds out of the north.  Birds are moving through just not at peak densities.

Looks like it was a good weekend to be looking for shorebirds on the north coast – if timed right.  Take a look at what my friend Bob scrounged up HERE>

I haven’t caught up with the listserves but Western Tanager, Cassin Vireo, Yellow-breasted Chat and Lazuli Bunting are in.  And this morning i heard the flight calls of Swainson’s Thrush overhead; at least a half a dozen.

Nationally birds were dodging some heavy weather but in the breaks and clear air heavy migration was taking place.
