|Tonight's unfavorable winds|
So, it's going to be another short one tonight. Not only are winds almost due northerly tonight, but a wide band of storm systems is passing through Illinois, so if there was any migration in Illinois last night, there should be even less tonight. So that's that.
Looking ahead in time (N and Central IL, S IL), winds are forecast to remain northerly in Northern and Central Illinois at least through Friday, whereas winds in Southern Illinois are forecast to have shifted to be more westerly by that point. Still no clearly favorable conditions in sight yet, but I'll be sure to tell you all when they come!
So as said yesterday, get out there and enjoy the migrants stuck here for the time being, studying such things as behavior. You may observe something new to you or perhaps even new to ornithology. Can't know if you don't look, so get out there if you can! Here's a the page to predict your findings.
Cheers everyone, and happy birding!
