North (??!!) bound migrants

Working from home today produced a few hirundines going north (north, WTF?!!?), including 2 RED-RUMPED SWALLOWS (house tick!), also a single BLUE-TAILED BEE-EATER, and a very nice 1st winter male pandoo BLUE ROCK THRUSH (the first one I've seen at the house for 18 months), and a male KESTRAL being mobbed by the local corvids. Yesterday a group of 4+ BLACK-NAPED ORIOLES passed through (also going north).
