5-1-16: Southern IL (Avian) Fallout Possible!

Hello birding friends,

The southern quarter of the state is experiencing very strong levels of avian migration tonight, and with the line of storms coming in from the west, there is a chance this line of storms could cause moderate fallout conditions in the southern quarter of the state tomorrow morning! Communities that fall under this "watch" include but are not limited to Centralia, Mount Vernon, Fairfield, Pinckneyville, Carbondale, Marion, Carmi, and points southward. Trail of Tears State Forest, Crab Orchard NWR, areas of Shawnee National Forest, and other hotspots in the southern quarter of the state would be worth visiting tomorrow morning.

The rest of the state is experiencing negligible levels of avian migration tonight. Planning ahead - for the northern part of the state, winds should shift to being favorable, southwesterly, starting Tuesday night.

Good birding,
Henry Griffin (Oak Park, Cook County)
