We’ve had a couple of excellent nights for migration back to back. And the whole Pacific Flyway was lit up last night.
But our local radar, KRTX:
68 NOUS66 KPQR 040251 FTMRTX Message Date: May 04 2017 06:20:01 THE KRTX (PORTLAND) RADAR HAS FAILED AND WILL BE DOWN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. TECH NICIANS ARE ASSESSING THE ISSUE.
Anyway: Nashville and Orange-crowned warblers are moving through in extraordinary numbers.A lone report of an Olive-sided Flycatcher, scattered Bullock’s Orioles and Western Kingbirds are also in the area. Waterfowl numbers continue to drop. Locally we’re waiting on Swainson’s Thrush, Western Wood Pewee, and Lazuli Bunting.
Nesting and even some fledglings are now being reported (and seen) as well.
