Second annual big day with Davey. It was a gorgeous day overall, with light morning showers being the only annoyance. Low: 40°F, high: 70°F. Mostly cloudy and 75% humidity. Continued northwest winds during the week definitely slowed migration, but southern winds in the afternoon concentrated nocturnal movements over coastal MA, highlighting movements of scoters and thrushes. Distance is the pure amount of ground covered; the entire day was done within a 2 mile diameter.

  1. Number observed: 16
    Breeding Code: FL Recently Fledged Young (Confirmed)
  2. Number observed: 9

  5. Number observed: 1160

    Details: ***Impressive movement at the tail end of migration. Flocks 170, 90, 150, 600, 150. Extremely accurate estimates from scope and photos. Very interesting movements over the past week including some large migrating flocks in Bristol county as well so it's not surprising there would be so many (if not more) in Essex's county as well.

  77. Number observed: 124

    Details: NFC 270 | **Huge movement with the first south winds in a week. Very accurate and conservative count of individuals - as a general trend 1 was bird counted for every 2 calls heard together in the same spot. Exceptions were made when calls were sufficiently spaced apart, and where calls were deciphered to be from different directions. Extremely careful judgment was made in all circumstances, and when birds came in waves, as was generally the case, extra caution was taken to make sure every tally was completely warranted. Considering the steady southbound winds the whole time and the only light being a distant street lamp, the probability of circling birds is nearly zero. With this many individual calls heard (>270), we feel it is appropriate to assume there were at least this many (124 is the exact clicker number we ended with), given a number of birds that surely went undetected or multiple individuals counted as just one.
