Subject: Watching Migration at Night--This Weekend under The Blue Moon

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe...and able to spend time enjoying their birds. Here's another thing to do this weekend...at night. Predictions are strong for 100+ million more birds to migrate south over the next 3 nights, starting tonight. If you have a scope and can see the moon (which is a "blue moon" because it's the second full moon this month), set it up with the purpose of watching the birds pass across its face. Binoculars are good too but a scope will give you more detail. This is best done as the moon rises or sets...and preferably where ambient light is minimal. My guess is most of our birds will be geese but it's fun and something to delight your heart. I've done this several times during migration and really enjoyed it. Sometimes it's like watching meteors shoot across the sky. And look for bats, insects and witches on this Halloween weekend. Details and more info here: https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fbirdcast.info%2Fnews%2Fwhats-that-spooky-pattern-on-radar-on-halloween-weekend-birds%2F&amp;data=04%7C01%<7Carbird-l...>%7C6414764dbbd943bc27e408d87d2eb21d%7C79c742c4e61c4fa5be89a3cb566a80d1%7C0%7C0%7C637396987093973368%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&amp;sdata=BjgfhltY3NV%2FKtFgX9M2PohISIKGAxM5Xk8pa1Fv6eI%3D&amp;reserved=0Patty McLean and Michael Linz The Roadrunners, Conway AR
