A major influx was taking place this afternoon west of the ferry. We noted dozens of migrants in the beach scrub and in the salt cedars near the corral just west of Holly Beach. Peveto was full of birds dominated by Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, catbirds and thrushes but plenty of variety as well.
Unfortunately radar showed what looked like a big take off from the coast after it got dark.
We will see tomorrow,
