To follow yesterday’s post, get out a look for landbirds!!!! Something extremely interesting is occurring in the wake of the epic passage of Sandy. Recent reports from Maryland to Maine of a bizarre mix of Neotropical migrants, including Connecticut Warbler (MD), Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Scarlet Tanager (NY), and Eastern Wood-Pewee (MA), suggest that the effects of Hurricane and Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy are not finished yet! If you have the opportunity, particularly today, tomorrow, and Sunday, go out to your favorite landbirding spots and see what you can find! Team eBird will post more extensively on this subject and other Sandy analysis on the eBird site next week, but in advance of that, ponder this: “Frankenstorm” Sandy sent coastal species to shore, oceanic species inland, western species east, Neotropical migrants north, Arctic species south, and European species west!
