Good question. I have wondered the same. My neighborhood in Greenbelt (PG Co) seems to have substantially more migrants than those of two birding friends who live at lower elevations in Greenbelt...I have assumed that elevation is part of the issue but places like rock Creek Park often have more diversity and higher numbers than my neighborhood (but also many more birders...).

Is elevation part of what makes a migrant trap? Peninsulas like Cape May in New Jersey make a lot of sense, but what about inland. How would one go about identifying a migrant trap in a place not already widely known. Does anyone know of any published research on this?
