11 May 2017 – PNW Migration Update

A low pressure system has made landfall.  The leading edge winds are out of the south and ahead of the rain we had a decent flight last night in the Metro area.

I had to look to the southern Willamette Valley to find our first reports of Willow Flycatcher; one in Lane and one in Benton County.  These are a week old and may be vanguard birds. But, Fittzz Bewww could be heard, maybe this weekend, in the Portland/Vancouver area.  That would leave only the Common Nighthawk to bring up the rear.

And a look at the national radar composite.
