I’ll keep this quick and dirty since I’m late to press… Southwest winds last night brought birds into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern US with the heaviest eastern flyway migration occurring north of Virginia. With a strong westerly component expect coastal migrant traps to be good bets this morning. Sandy Hook should be good, as well as Cape May as the trajectory of migration was shifted enough to the east to include the most southerly island. Inland hotspots should be good today as well since the highest density of migration continues to originate from our west.
