Your Mission Now, Find Landbirds! Eastern Forecast Update for 2 – 4 November 2012

Andrew Farnsworth The Cornell Lab Nov 02, 2012

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!┬áTeam 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!
