  • More birds push north from Texas to New Jersey as the latest front marches east

    More birds push north from Texas to New Jersey as the latest front marches east

    The latest frontal boundary extends from Texas to New Jersey as of last night, bringing southerly flow from Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula all the way through the Mid-Atlantic region. Trans-Gulf migration was evident late yesterday afternoon across the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast, and birds could also be seen making landfall in Florida this morning as they left Cuba after sunset last night. Heavy precipitation associated with the northeastern edge of the front may have caused some localized fallout conditions in the Washington D.C. area this morning as well. The Upper Midwest was again too far north of the frontal boundary to receive the bulk of the migrants heading towards the region, although the light and variable winds over the area did allow some birds already here to push farther to the northwest into the forecast zone.

    Watching the Mets game last night I was again reminded of how crappy television can be… which is unfortunate, because the game was awesome (10-8 win with some serious battling down to the end of the 9th inning). Two images stick in my mind as of this morning; first being the Verizon FiOS commercial, where […]

  • What to do with that bitter lettuce?

    Well, I’m determined to do something with it… will try a Saag Paneer sometime next week, but in the meantime, I’m throwing the stuff into my blender by the handful… it’s actually pretty good! Here I am with my latest concoction: 2 Big handfuls of bitter lettuce + one big leaf of swiss chard, and […]
