Very little migration over Jerze

Northwest winds aloft appear to have countered the southwest surface winds just enough to trigger some light migration over the mid-Atlantic. Here’s the radar from 7:00pm last night through 5:00am this morning.

Well, it wasn’t much, but it was something! It’ll be interesting to see the report from Higbee’s Beach today, since what little did move was moving to the southeast. I would think whatever birds were in motion were likely to be strong fliers given the opposing winds at ground level.

Good Birding

    Well, looks like there may be something going on in the SE US. The loop shows a hugh explosion at pretty much every station.
