The great numbers died down by this afternoon census. By this time, the winds had shifted to Northwest and had become rather weak. Perhaps it was good enough weather for crossing over to Delaware. The next couple of days are predicted to be rainy, so we shouldn't expect to see much until the rain passes over us. Luckily, the weather will be good for the Autumn Birding Festival! Monarchs are part of the events on Saturday, so make sure you plan your weekend around it!
