I have never seen it stated here, but a tip I got from Ricky Davis via Steve Howell is that you have to arrive at Buckhorn before the rain event stops. The coastal birds blown inland leave as soon as the weather starts to improve. This was evident at Buckhorn Reservoir today. Yesterday while it was raining there were 300-500 martins, swallows, swifts, etc.. This morning I saw two barn swallows and one chimney swift. So don't make a trip there on the day after a storm.
