MIA end of last week because the rain obscured any migrant returns, if any.
Last night we begin to see the waning of the season. Fairly light across the Metro Region. Most decent returns are along the western flanks of the Cascades.
Ducks are coming out of eclipse plumage. Ruby-crowned Kinglet numbers are up as are the wintering sparrow numbers. Pine Siskins are invading coastal counties. And a first report of a Rough-legged Hawk, also on the coast.
The Snow Geese are back on Sauvie Island.
