Something to note is the direction birds are moving. The winds switched from WNW to NW to NNW overnight, and you can see the birds follow suit in the velocity image. Because of this, we don’t see birds overshooting the coast at the same magnitude we saw last week, when winds were strong and out of the west through morning. Either way, all migrant hotspots will be birdy today; inland and coastal. Okay- I’m off to Sandy Hook…my first day of birding in weeks!!
P.S. Come see how the big flight played out down south on woodcreeper’s sister site: Badbirdz – Reloaded
