It looks like after the weather cleared, a few birds attempted to get out on the NW winds. The migration was small, but apparent. It’s probable that it was more obvious at coastal sites, where birds immediately turned around for shore as the sun rose just a couple of hours after the front cleared.
Rain is keeping migration down tonight, unless it’s happening under the radar! Winds are favorable (light north), but the weather isn’t cooperating. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for strong westerly winds across the state. Go Hawkwatching! Sandy Hook, Cape May, Montclair, Chimney Rock, and of course, Raccoon Ridge should all be seeing some raptors tomorrow. No radar to post in the AM, so get out there and watch raptors pick off sparrows.
