Subject: Large Robin flyover, Chatham County NC
During the Chapel Hill CBC yesterday we had a stream of American Robins
flyover where Lystra meets Jordan Lake
(https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://goo.gl/maps/vthf3xhq1Uv6ghfe9__;!!OToaGQ!-fLhXMwbY-VGmnmWOZQRTIPUKoKVUGWpiLZRjGCqXC-iBR0QcFgT7ql6Ymbr6TLo1-Q$ ) pre-dawn, parked on the west
side of the bridge. The flight started about 25 minutes before sunrise
and lasted over 10 minutes. We counted approximately 3460 individuals,
but the flight was still intermittently happening while we were moving
on with the count.

I'm not sure if this flock repeats this route, but figured I'd pass it
on in case someone wanted to try for this spectacle.
