5/10 IL Migration Report

Tonight's radar

I'm on the road tonight and have to write this report on my phone, so this should be pretty short and sweet. Luckily, there isn't much to write about, as IL is again ruled by strong northerly winds, right down to the
southern tip of the state. So it looks like Saturday will remain to be fairly unremarkable as far as migration goes. This is reflected by the radar, which shows the east and south (check out Louisiana!) lighting up while completely leaving out the Midwest, which is experiencing light migration right now at best. So it looks like, for the most part, tomorrow's birds will largely be the same as today's. Tomorrow looks like it will be a sit tight and fatten up day for migrants.

That's what I got for now, folks. Feel free to comment with any questions on things I didn't cover. There still hasn't been any significant movements of new species, so the assortment of species remained the same today, for the most part. This should again be the case tomorrow. In any case, good luck and happy birding!
