Storms Trump Migration

Here in the northeastern U.S. we've had a dreary day. Gray skies, rain, wind, more rain. Unfortunately, that means less in the way of migration, probably both on the inbound and outbound migrants. The radar map at 10:30 PM EDT shows intermittent rain across our region, but to our south: whoa, look out! Lots of birds hitting the air from northern Florida across to Texas . . . and beyond.

Hopefully this gets the neotrops closer to our area, but it looks like it won't be tomorrow.

Which is fine, I still have a few birds that are around but I haven't found yet. You've been warned, Hermit Thrush, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and Yellow-rumped Warbler. I'm after you . . . .
