10/7 IL Migration Report

The Prairie State is graced with heavy
migration tonight.

Hey folks!

So again, in spite of unfavorable southwesterly winds tonight, birds are moving at moderate to heavy concentrations. The radar, as last night, is green in many places in Illinois, showing that the birds are racing the cold weather south. This means tomorrow, influxes of thrushes, warblers, and sparrows should be occurring tomorrow. As yesterday, keep an eye out for migrant raptors and any diving ducks, which should be appearing in Illinois soon. Predict what you'll be seeing here.
Tonight's should-be
unfavorable winds.

On the wind forecast, winds are predicted to remain dominated by southerly flow at least through Wednesday, but to echo yesterday, birds seem to be migrating in just about any conditions. Because of this, it's hard to say which days will be conducive to migration. But we could also predict that there will be moderate to heavy movements every night...and I'm okay with that!

Cool. Good luck everybody!
