OK — now we’re talking! And there are A LOT more ducks in the area.
Radar was lit up into the 20+ dBZ range throughout the night. We had good images too; starting before the night bloom and into the dawn.
As a plus we have the Barn Swallow roost in Yamhill County along the Willamette River. In the first loop we can see them put down before dusk. I added a short loop so we can see them take off at dawn; which is much more pronounced. If you look closely you can see a few more dawn fly-outs; a couple in southern Marion County and one along the Columbia in Columbia County.
Oh, i heard of a Bufflehead sighting; something i usually associate with the last legs of the fall migration. A vanguard no doubt, but odd none the less.
