I have a single word to describe last night’s flight on the radar: WOW
Here’s it is from sunset last night through 5:00am this morning.

It was hot and heavy across the entire region last night, but the heaviest movement was through NJ and the Delmarva. Looking at the regional composite you can actually see the highest densities of birds make their way down the state… very cool! Overall movement was NW->SE through central NJ, turning more N->S as you move into the southern reaches. This bodes well for both inland migrant traps as well as coastal ones such as Cape May…. In fact, Cape May should be excellent this morning. Gotta go- in the middle of smoking a whole pig and doing an impromptu Big Sit!
