Subject: RNP: Nocturnal Thrush Migration
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Clear skies and a gentle northerly breeze seem to have inspired another exodus of northern nesters. I spent half-an-hour before dawn this morning listening to thrush migration from the fields bordering Robinson Nature Preserve and the Chattahoochee River. There were hundreds of calls, with call density peaking at about 50/minute. Besides thrushes, I heard a few "high rising seeps", but nothing I could name.
In the thrush category, from most numerous to least numerous, I heard the calls of Swainson's Thrush, Veery, Wood Thrush, and Gray-cheeked Thrush (only 4 calls from graycheeks).
