The winds finally changed last night to a more favorable northwesterly direction, but the big push of birds hasn’t happened yet. We did get a magnolia warbler and a couple of days ago (on the last northwesterly wind) a swainson’s thrush, but the rest so far have been more local species. A quick look this morning at last year’s daily logs for this time period shows we’re pretty much on schedule and should start seeing more numbers and varieties in the coming week. We’ll keep you posted!
