Our first 1,000+ plus Broad-Wing day at Audubon Greenwich this season. Many
distant kettles to our north in the morning hours followed by high streams
in the afternoon. While tonight's winds are shifting to the South and
showers are expected in the AM, weather.com predicts that the winds will
shift back to NW by tomorrow afternoon and stay that way for atleast a
couple days so I don't think we're done just yet. The more eyes the better
out here.
