Thanks for sharing! I'm gonna head to my local spot (FIU) and hope to replicate some of your sightings! It's amazing learning about how the weather impacts migration numbers. I've been stalking ebird checklists to see how different locations do with the storms when they come overnight but it's nice to have somebody give a report here.

The military base was insane with birds today. Wilson's warbler and western tanager were highlights! Oven birds were allover the place.
