West flanks of the Cascades had another nice flight last night.  Additionally the Metro area had moderate movement as well.  Probably Ridgefield, Sauvie Island, and the Vancouver-Smith-Bybee lake complex. 35 more words

It’s still early but some birds are on the move.  Read a report of Greater White-fronted Geese vanguards in the air moving south along the coast.  59 more words

There are birds on the move but we’re not at peak densities yet; it’s still early.  In the Gray’s Harbor radar you can see a small, short but intense return on the south shore; so maybe the shorebirds are getting antsy as they begin to stage for a push south. 85 more words

Minimal movement last night in the Metro Area.  The onshore flow might have been a deterrent.  There was a nice flight across the Strait again so birds are on the move – just not widespread yet. 87 more words

Well now, things are picking up. We’re getting some solid flights that i would categorize as moderate.  Plenty of green (around 20dBz) but not widespread.  Lots of movement on the perimeter of the Puget Sound, a nice wave of migrants across the Strait, and the west flanks of the Cascades. 76 more words

Flights are still on the light side for the most part, but there is movement and there are pockets of moderate to heavy migration.  Take a look at the ATX (Seattle) radar and note the small, but dense, pulse of birds crossing the Strait over to the Peninsula. 100 more words
