Oct 27, 2015
Tonight, Illinois is experiencing very little avian movement, as evidenced by the almost complete lack of blue radar noise over the state on the current national composite radar (http://tempest.aos.wisc.edu/radar/us3comp.gif). This means that avian turnover will be negligible tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.
Hawk Watching Forecast: Tomorrow, east winds with rain in the forecast for the afternoon for northeast Illinois make for poor hawk watching conditions - it is not recommended for tomorrow.
To predict exactly which species you are likely to encounter and when, please consult:
BirdCast's migration forecast for this week: http://birdcast.info/forecast/regional-migration-forecast-23-30-october-2015/#MidwestNortheast

In summary, tomorrow (Tuesday) should not be a great day for birding across the state.
