14 September 2016 – PNW Migration Update

Pretty solid flight last night around the Metro Region.

In today’s loop: just as it starts look at the Yamhill/Marion County border along the Willamette River — Barn Swallows coming into roost!  It starts around 5:00 PM (00:00 UTC) and lasts a few hours until around 7:00 PM (02:00 UTC).  Then this morning around 6:30 AM (13:00 UTC) they begin to disperse for the day — mainly headed north.

First Ruby-crowned Kinglets are being reported as well as the first (Sooty) Fox Sparrows and quite a few more Cackling Geese showing up,
