Yes! I was near Union Station in DC beginning my Lights Out monitoring route around 5:45-6:00am Saturday, and I heard loads and loads of birds overhead. (I found 9 window strike victims, which is medium-to-high for the typical daily number of birds we find during the fall)
According to the weather forecast and BirdCast, it looks like Monday night into Tuesday morning should be heavy across the region! I look forward to hearing what people see on Tuesday.
