It is shown that the scattering resonance effects in echoes from migrating birds are so strong that a 10% frequency deviation within S-band can result in more than 10-dB changes in reflectivity values. Differential reflectivity values from adjacent polarimetric WSR-88D weather radars operating at offset frequencies can differ by several decibels in “clear air” echoes.
