Late Migration Spotty Migration

Dawn asked a good question. How long do the Tree Swallows stay?
Well, this year is an odd year. Generally the hordes of Tree Swallows come in Mid-October and build to wow factor flocks by the end of October. They are noticed by everyone driving the Jekyll causeway. By Thanksgiving, they start to taper off . This year the birds would come in and then thin out. They appear to be late but I have observed that in most of the migration this year. Has anyone else noticed that the migration of birds is spotty and late?
