This past weekend was set up near perfect for fallout action at High Island, but someone forgot to tell the birds! The storms rolled through the area on Friday. Winds shifted, blowing out of the north and Holly and I were on the coast waiting... and waiting... and waiting. The fallout didn't happen... not Saturday or Sunday. Birders with much more experience that us were left scratching their heads. At the height of migration season, there were undoubtedly high expectations, but this weekend was one of those that hosted more birders than birds. The trip was not a total bust. We landed another 17 species for our flickr stream, including great looks at male Cerulean and Blackburnian Warblers.
Next up is probably one more trip to the UTC in early May, then we shift our focus to SE Arizona where we have an eight-day trip booked and ready.
