If anyone is awake now (5:45am Saturday), take a quick listen outside. Nocturnal flight calls have been trickling past all week pre-sunrise, but right now there's a pretty decent flight up here in northern Montgomery County.
I was just hearing 15-20 birds per minute, with some even visible against the skyglow. Mostly thrushes, but a few sparrows and warblers mixed in. A Yellow-billed Cuckoo was easily identifiable as it passed high overhead.
