Tonight, Illinois is experiencing a moderate to moderately-heavy avian flight. As seen on the current national composite radar (http://tempest.aos.wisc.edu/radar/us3comp.gif), 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.
