After a stellar pre season start with early migrating birds in February, March has brought some weather pretty anti-conducive to migration. In fact, we’ve only done official longshore flight counts on March 5, March 6, March 8, and March 12 since the lions of March entered.
The current forecast does not look to stellar for migration going forward for the next week. When conditions are ideal (i.e. south winds) rain is in the forecast. So for now, sit tight. We won’t blog as much when birds aren’t moving.
You can still visit the Dunes State Park Nature Center and enjoy the Fox Sparrows that arrived a week ago and have been stuck here waiting on more ideal winds to migrate north on !
