This week at Marymoor we finally had decent numbers for some of the
neotropical migrants. But we've had no empids and no pewee yet. Vaux's
Swift numbers have been very low. Swallow numbers have been low.
Sunday, I did the Toppenish sector of the Yakima Migration Count and had
pitifully few warblers and sparrows.
My sense is that neotropical migrants are below 50% of normal, but we'll
have hard data within a few weeks to answer these questions for real.
