Comments:
A remarkable movement of all sorts of migrants at Presque Isle this morning. It was awesome to watch hundreds of migrants fly in along the breakwall, apparently the only structure visible to many birds in the dense fog. One of the coolest things I've ever experienced while birding. All counts are very accurate, with individual birds from each flock entered into the app as soon after observation as possible.

Not flagged, but this seems like a high count to me. Attempt at an exact count, but no doubt I missed some. Many calling flyovers early in the morning, and also plenty on the ground. Have Voice Memo recordings of some of the loose flyover flocks.

Estimate of the unidentifiable flyovers early in the morning. Probably more. Don't have flight calls down very well yet.
