Oct 7 - 9, 2015
A couple things - this report will be more succinct than usual since I am in dire need of sleep already this week! :-) Also, I will not be able to post tomorrow (Wednesday) or Thursday nights, so I will go over those nights in this report, as well.
Tonight Illinois is experiencing MODERATE to HEAVY migration levels - see all the radar noise on the current national composite radar? (http://tempest.aos.wisc.edu/radar/us3comp.gif)
Tomorrow (Wednesday) night, Illinois should experience moderate movements again throughout the state. Rain and southerly winds will return Thursday night; however, so little migration should be expected then. So in summary, go birding tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday mornings!
To predict exactly which species you are likely to find and when, please consult:

Go birding tomorrow and Thursday mornings!
