Overnight northerly winds brought another day of good migration to Sandy Hook. Species were much the same, with a few departures and a few arrivals. Northern parulas and blackpolls again predominated, whether new arrivals or stayovers from yesterday. But the relative numbers changed for many other species - many fewer cuckoos, but more palm warblers, for example. Connecticut warblers were still present in several areas. But the standout sighting was 3 clay-colored sparrows found by Milton Collins foraging together in the Proving Grounds area at North Beach in the afternoon. I've only seen single individuals before.
So this brief 2 day window of north winds brought in quite a variety of migrants that had been holed up waiting. The next week reverts to more southerly and easterly winds.
