I strongly encourage you to check out the Cape May Bird Observatory's View from the Field. The site is mostly daily data and counts from the various research projects run by CMBO (morning flight, hawk watch, seawatch, and Monarch migration project). Lately, the morning flight reports have been interesting! All of the birds recorded by morning flight are identified as they fly past. This year's counter, Tom Johnson, does a great job of identifying birds as well as photographing them.
