Since several folks inquired, here are the last couple counts. I didnt' have my snow disc/parabolic dish this time but still heard a ton of calls. I have tried full moon birding and yesterday tried to look straight up with bins in hope to see waves of birds, but I only saw bats. Hard to get the focus correct on whatever column of air these thrushes are using. Heading to hanging rock for some hawk counts, will try to get a few nights in up there. I need to start earlier as the data below show a clear pre dawn peak, which does exist but not that drastic I believe.
