18 Apr 2014 PNW Migration Update

Mixed bag of sketchy weather.  It’s really kind of disorganized out there weather wise.  So, while some birds are still pushing north in spite of it all, not many.  191 more words

The fast moving weak ridge and advancing low has our conditions mixed for this night’s migration window.  Winds are out of the WSW as the low is centered north of us.  174 more words

A bit of a shift in the weather.  We’re in the boundary area of the current low trough and an advancing high ridge.  Scattered rain and WNW winds.  248 more words

The advance of this little trough brought a little rain and winds shifting to NNW.  Not ideal and most migrants sat last night out waiting for better times.  164 more words

Two in a row.  Clear, calm, with supporting south winds.  Migration is accelerating.  Black-headed Grosbeaks and Orioles are on their way.  Tanagers, Kingbirds and everyone’s favorites – the Empids can’t be far behind. 139 more words

Another cold front is moving in from the Pacific.  Lots of clouds and scattered precipitation.  In the loops we can see a wee bit of opportunistic migration but that’s about it.  136 more words

Very quick post –

Light north winds like last night (LaPuma correction) winds were out of the SSW and the birds were jammin’!  20+ dBZ most of the night. 81 more words
