Sept 2, 2015

Hello birding friends,

Quite frankly, Illinois is experiencing negligible amounts of movement over our skies tonight and we shouldn't see any noticeable pushes of migrants until Tuesday, September 8 or Wednesday, September 9 - that's about a week from now. This is due to a high pressure system that is and will be sitting over us for about a week, delivering hot temperatures along with unfavorable southerly winds.

The northern two third of Illinois are experiencing very little, if any, migration at all while the southern third is experiencing migration in light concentrations tonight as seen from the current national composite radar.

That's it for tonight folks; it's been another long day for me, another early morning for school tomorrow, and a lack of migrants make for a short migration report.

Good birding,
