Oct 17 - 19, 2015

Hello birding friends,

I am extremely, extremely busy with musical commitments for the next 7 days so in order to balance out schoolwork and music, I will only be posting again on Monday night and then on the following Saturday night (!). Wish I could post more frequently, but the life of a musician can be hectic (but fun!)...

Tonight, Illinois is experiencing uniform moderate to moderately-heavy concentrations of migration, as seen by the fairly even blue radar noise showing up across the state on the current national composite radar:

Here is the day-by-day breakdown of what to expect:

Tonight: moderate to heavy movement
Tomorrow: favorable conditions for hawk watching in NE IL
Tomorrow night: moderate movement likely
Sunday: favorable conditions for hawk watching in NE IL
Sunday night: very little movement expected
Monday: semi-favorable conditions for hawk watching in NE IL

To predict exactly which species you are likely to encounter and when, please consult:

Good birding,

Henry (Oak Park, Cook County)
