9/23 IL Migration Report

High pressure's still causing slow, southerly winds...not
much to report here.
Hey all,

So, you guys, again Illinois is mostly without migration. Strong southeasterly winds are effectively shutting down most if not all bird migration over IL, so we won't have much to talk about in the way of predictions.

Wind forecasts are a little bright for some of us Illinoisans. It looks like by 2 to 4 AM Wednesday morning, winds are forecast to be northeasterly in the Northern third of the state. These winds are set to be super weak at this stage, so don't expect too much movement as the wind won't be heading in the perfect direction, and it won't be much additional lift for the migrants. Other than that, I can't tell you much...yet. We'll see what pops up in the forecast as the week moves on.

Good stuff. Happy birding, all.
