Birds Crossing Gulf of Mexico in Big Numbers

This is a radar image of the Texas gulf coast. From the returns it appears that there are large numbers of birds arriving along the coast today. The surprising thing to me is that it is midday so these are probably birds that have been flying all night just getting to land. If anyone is in the area and can get out, it would be interesting to know if this is an indication of a true "fallout" of migrants.

If nothing else, it means that those of us to the north can still expect a big influx of birds sometime in the next week or so I would imagine.

Texas birders - you out there?
