Morning Flight - 16-17 August, 2015

Good Morning!

Sponsored by: Swarovski Optik & Specteo

Hi, It's Glen Davis and I am very excited to be back with CMBO's Morning Flight Project at the Higbee Dike as primary counter.  This year's takeoff was special as we premiered the professional data entry app by Specteo. Now we can enter and display the action to you in realtime!  We'll have this to you all very soon!  We will be sharing the views, bird info, and, of course, all the thrills with you from August 16th through October 31st.  We are always learning new things about songbird migration from watching at the Higbee Dike.  That means you should come over and see what it's all about!

We welcome Tom Reed back this year as our Migration Count Coordinator-- in additions to working for all three migration counts-- at Hawk Watch, Avalon Seawatch, and Morning Flight, he will be taking on new responsibilities overseeing migration research projects and helping to bring the birding world to the present and beyond with his expertise in the Specteo app.

Get pumped for coming up to the dike, and shake the flat flies and mites off those dusty feathers by trying to ID these!  - bird names are at the bottom.
