5/29 IL Migration Report

So tonight, we see yet another report with southerly winds forecast for tonight and the next couple of days (Northern IL Wind Forecast:, Southern IL Wind Forecast:, and light migration for the most part in IL. But migration by no means has left us completely. Today especially saw good numbers of migrant flycatchers, vireos, thrushes, and other late passerines. Shorebirds also continue to be on the move, and will be so into June. A lot of this, though, remains in Northern and Central IL; not much is moving anymore in Southern IL with the exception of a few late passerines and shorebirds.

As you can see, this week has seen a fair level of uniformity...we'll see what happens when things start to change up. At this point, there's very little hindering remaining migrants as far as weather goes.

To figure out which species to look for in your area, here are the eBird resources I've made a habit of sharing.

Good stuff. Get out there and find something good!
