As you know it can be tough to call the best night following the passage of
a cold front when that passage doesn't complete before nightfall. It may
well be (seen it plenty of times in the past) that many migrants didn't
commit last night due to the atmospheric conditions in the early part of the
night. Based on my previous experience, that should mean a much better
movement tonight. Still, Bluff should have had some birds going through this
morning and I'm curious if anyone was there and will post.

 Hi All,

Surprisingly quiet in the morning here at the Audubon Center - the only
highlight were two Lincoln's Sparrows amongst a handful of regular migrants.
Today could be good for Broad-winged Hawk migration so get yourself down
here or to a nearby inland site if you want to try witness the phenomenon.
