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.
