Little movement throughout the region last night

Maryland and Delaware

There was little movement throughout the region last night. The radar was relatively quiet throughout much of the night and if anything birds moved south out of the area. Migration appears to be slowing down, but we may get another push of Yellow-rumped Warblers and Sparrows before it’s all said and done.

Check out the Migration Tools on the right sidebar for information that I use to predict migration conditions and analyze the radar. I will generally be posting before the radar is up, which is usually around 6:30 am. Check back then to view the base reflectivity and velocity for the area.

Decent movement throughout the region last night

Maryland and Delaware

The radar showed a moderate movement throughout the region for most of the night. It appeared that more birds were leaving than coming in, but birding should be good today! Is there any day that birding isn’t good?

Strong, steady movement all night

Maryland and Delaware

There appeared to be a strong, steady movement of birds throughout the region all night. Birding should be good anywhere you go today! It looked like Cape May, both the Morning Flight and Hawk Watch, had a great day yesterday, and I would bet today would be just as good! GO BIRDING!

Strong migration until early this morning

Maryland and Delaware

Migration was strong early in the night (check out this link for a Migration Alert post from last night), but then slowed to almost nothing a round 2:00 or 3:00 this morning in Delaware. In Maryland, birds were moving all night. Birding should be good today throughout the region even though movement slowed in Delaware early this morning. Look for another big push of Butterbutts, sparrows, and most likely winter finches into the region!

Migration Alert for Southern Delaware!

With a northwest wind of 5 to 10 mph, birds are on the move. I sat outside for about a half hour and watched between 40 and 50 birds cross the moon (check out this cool moonwatching video!) and easily heard between 75 and 100 flight calls. Most of the flight calls sounded like sparrows, but there were probably Yellow-rumped Warblers mixed in. The winds should keep up throughout the night pushing migrants south through the region. Birding tomorrow should be excellent! Check back in the morning for a full night analysis.

Light movement last night, but tonight should be moderate to heavy

Maryland and Delaware

There was a decent movement of birds through Maryland last night and a light movement in Delaware. With northwest winds the next few nights, migration should be relatively moderate to heavy with another big push of wintering birds including sparrows and Yellow-rumped Warblers into the region.

No movement with the storms passing through

Maryland and Delaware

We saw almost no movement with the storms passing through the region last night. There may have been local movements in areas that did not get hit my the storms.
