Major CLE passerine flight Sept 5/6

Laura Gooch and Tim Krynak reported awesome numbers of night flight calls last night (Sept 5/6) from their night-recorders in North Olmstead and Cleveland Heights. Laura had 1,000 warbler/sparrow calls that she’s sorting through. On the Cleveland Metroparks pelagic boat trip today, EIGHT miles offshore Wildwood Park (east of CLE), we had a migrant Merlin and American Redstart, the latter considered landing on the boat but double-backed and flew towards shore. Large movement of Monarchs today (over 100 offshore CLE between 5 and 8 miles offshore, from boat), and Red Bats (3 seen) staged a good flight last night/this morning. Migration is ramping up and happening now. Get out there!
