The heaviest migration was of birds leaving north and central Jersey heading south. Very little replacement occurred into the northern part of the state, so birding conditions in the northern half should have degraded overnight. On the other hand, birds were leaving Pennsylvania heading ESE last night, so southern Jersey received a double-dose of migrants from both the west, and the north. This could mean excellent birding conditions in places like Cape May, but also would be good for places along the Delaware River such as Palmyra and the upper Delaware Bay. Okay- now for the ground truthing! I expect some reports from the field this afternoon (yes, that means you!).
