Here’s the overview for tonight. As you can see, New Jersey has been left out, for some reason. New Jersey is the source for New England’s migrant birds in the spring. Winds over NJ are out of the east, but light, with strong southwest winds at higher altitudes. Fog may be playing a role, but apparently these surface winds are enough, because they’re prevalent over Delaware and are keeping birds on the ground there too. This lack of movement in New Jersey may hamper arrivals throughout New England tomorrow.
Connecticut aside, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and to a lesser extent, New Hampshire and Maine might see the arrival of a few birds in the morning, but I would not regard this movement as major. Rain will likely interact with birds over Vermont, western Mass and possibly Connecticut while birds are in the air. It’s hard to predict how that will play out. I’m planning to get up early to bird Miantonomi, southern Rhode Island’s migrant trap, so I’m not going to make any promises to update first thing in the morning. I’ll revisit later in the day.
