After a long summer, I was excited to start begin fall migration banding today but Mother Nature had other ideas. A "cold" front had moved into South Carolina this morning but unfortunately it also brought with it rain - lots and lots of rain. The cooler temperatures and north winds would have most certainly brought in some early migrants. This cold front has now stalled out over us and this wet weather pattern is expected to continue for the next 2-3 days dumping as much as 5-8 inches of rain in some areas. I will be watching the weather all night and if it looks like there will be a break in the weather in the morning I am going to try to get out. However, at this point it looks more like wishful thinking.
