9/12 IL Migration Report

Hey folks!

So finally, for tonight, everything's coming together. Cold fronts or pushing in from the north, and with them, strong and favorable northerly winds are aloft. To top that off, things are mostly clear in much of the state, so migratory conditions tonight are really about as good as they're going to get.

And no surprise, the birds are using it up tonight, with heavy migration present over the entire state. The time is nigh, my friends. Tomorrow morning should be bursting with bird activity at your local patch, so if you can, get out there and get your fixin' of flycatchers, vireos, thrushes, warblers, sparrows, and all the migratory passerine goodness filling our skies right now. Raptors, shorebirds, and ducks should also be migrating tomorrow, as strong northerly winds are forecast to last at least through the day tomorrow if not tomorrow night. Make your own predictions as to which species or genera could be found tomorrow by looking at the eBird Master list here. to see live

Awesome! Have a good night everybody. Tomorrow morning should be awesome.
