Don’t be fooled!

The forecast for last night was for a major migration movement in the northeast. Shortly after sunset the radar indicated it was in full swing. As the night progressed, so did the intensity of movement. This continued right on until approximately 5:30 this morning. In my mind, with the significant movement of the last four days combined with the fact that birds were moving from so far north, I was sure today would be fantastic. Not the case. In fact, almost everything that had been being seen over the last several days, was gone. Yesterday I tallied 16 species of warblers between the Bashakill and my yard. Those birds numbered over 60 individuals. Today, I found 6 species of warblers totaling 13 birds. Once again, near perfect migration conditions simply caused a major fly over of our region. What can we conclude from these facts?  Well, I’m not really sure at all. What I do know is that the forecast for tonight is nearly as perfect as last night. What will this mean for us tomorrow? I’m not really sure about that either. I can’t help but wonder though with a somewhat compromised forecast for the following night, if that night might not bring a much better flight locally. We can only wait and see, and hope to learn something from all this information we are gathering. Good luck out there!
