Missing Fallouts Due to Attending Ornithological Meetings


Recommended Posts

This could have gone to the "LOL" thread due to the irony of situation.

I attended my very first Alabama Ornithological Society meeting tonight.  The Spring meeting is usually held at Dauphin Island-a major migratory flyway--but, was necessarily virtual this year, so many attendees were still at their homes in various areas of Alabama, far removed from the island.  At meeting's start, it was noted that less than half of the those who registered were not yet online.  Then the message came through that there was a fall-out occuring at Dauphin Island at that very moment and those absent birders were there. We have had constant, steady, and heavy flooding rain for the last 3 days, and when it let up for an hour or so, it "released" the birds.   Some of the absentee birders came online from the field to report they were surrounded by wall-to-wall warblers.  

It's raining again now and won't let up again until 0600 tomorrow, so maybe we will have another fallout.  🤞
