09 May 2017 – PDX Migration Update

Clear skies, negligible wind and primordial urge — migration continues.  Still no Willow Flycatcher.

I put in the National Composite today to show why birding the Gulf Coast is so rewarding.  The static image is from about 3 PM Monday.  Note the 20-30 dBZ returns along the coast.  Those are trans-gulf migrants making landfall and they need a rest.
