Thought it was worth mentioning that this is the firstspring since
2013 that the short window for peak shorebird/seabird flights starting
in a couple days isforecast to coincide with a sustained period of
dailynorth winds extending far down into southern Cal.
In the past these conditions have typically compressedmigrating flocks
near shore, as well as (I think)
north/south causing larger than normal, occasionallyspectacular
aggregations to form. The last few springcoastal migrations have been
comparatively lackluster,so hoping the current long-range forecast
holds andI didn't just jinx it.
