17 May 2016 – PNW Migration Update

Well, the Willow Flycatcher is now being reported across the Metro area.  Just getting back i have not checked the listserves but i think all of the neotropical migrants have arrived.  Common Nighthawk being the exception; it has not yet been reported in Oregon.  They have been spotted in isolated sightings in California a few times.

Last night, in spite of a mild head wind, migration through the Metro area was on the heavy side — not so much along the coast.  The winds might have been a bit more intense.
