Hi All, I've been running my microphone since July 28th. Last night (August 1st) had the highest total so far. Some of these birds may be in post-fledgling movements within the province of Nova Scotia. Some are very likely migrating, e.g., Yellow Warbler, American Redstart, Black-and-White Warbler, and Canada Warbler. The closest weather radar at Caribou, Maine indicates very low density of echoes so far. The totals for last night are listed below.
