When the current front clears out there will be a decent push of migrants. The current forecast is for northwest winds on Saturday and northeast winds on Sunday. The timing of rain ending and follow-on conditions are not great (at least as forecast) for morning flight at Bluff Point but things only need to be a little different than forecast and it could be quite good. The first few days of October can produce some of the biggest flights of nocturnal migrants, this is because of the number of Yellow-rumped Warblers, Blackpolls, and the big push of sparrows that kicks in now. So expect lots of Juncos and White-throateds. Hawk watches should be interesting this weekend and it is a good time for rarities as well.
