Hello birding friends,
Tonight, the northern half and southwestern portions of Illinois are experiencing moderate to heavy concentrations of migrating birds. With the light southwesterly winds acting as tailwinds and funneling birds along the lakeshore tonight, I STRONGLY recommend visiting lakefront sites such as Montrose Point tomorrow (Friday, May 6) morning. Any hotspot within the areas of the state mentioned above would certainly be worth checking; however, and I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled on the way to and from school!
