Hello birding friends,

Tonight, Illinois is experiencing a moderate to moderately-heavy avian flight. As seen on the current national composite radar (, the northern three quarters of Illinois are experiencing moderate levels of migration while the far southern quarter is sporting slightly heavier migration tonight.

Hawk Watching Forecast: Easterly winds predominating tomorrow in northeast Illinois should not be pushing hawks towards the lakefront, and when combined with less-than-optimal viewing conditions for hawks - mostly sunny skies - tomorrow should not be a productive day for raptor migration.

To predict exactly which species you are likely to find and when, please consult:
BirdCast's regional migration forecast for this week:

Good birding,

Henry (Oak Park, Cook County)
