Good luck to everyone! If I missed anything, let me know, and as always, please do follow up with sightings from tomorrow. I'd love to see what tonight's movement brings.
(Also, I'm looking for a catchier name for this report than IL Migration Report, like IL-DAR, or something that has to do with bird migration and radar. Any yes it can be acronymized. Have at it.)
