05 May 20160- PNW Migration Update

We’re in between weather systems and the winds are light but out of the north.  Obviously it put a bit of a damper on northbound flight as the migration last night was moderate at best.

Western Kingbird, Cassin’s Vireo, Hermit and Yellow Warblers, and Lazuli Bunting – first reports from the general Metro area.

06 April 2016 – PNW Migration Update

Moderate movement around the region last night but heavier than last night.

Early House Wrens, more Nashville Warblers and Cassin’s Vireos. Common Yellowthroats are everywhere now.  Vesper Sparrows have returned to their north valley breeding grounds.

The weather is a mixed and confused bag of competing systems right now, so it’s hard to tell where this is going in the next few days.

31 March 2016 – PNW Migration Update

With the north winds abating as we move into the eye of the high pressure ridge the birds definitely took note.  The first set of “green doughnuts” across the region.  The game is ON!

Grasshopper Sparrows have made it to the San Diego area and Cassin’s Vireos are now in the Central Valley.
