My friend Kirk Mona has posted a really cool loop of last nights radar as the nocturnal migrants begin to lift off and head north. Just the amount of movement is impressive but if you also look at the geographic area that the movement covers it boggles the mind. You can see the loop here.
A run of several warm days in a row is predicted and that can only mean more good birds by this weekend. If anyone is in the Twin Cities area on Saturday March 21st, the regular monthly bird banding session will be held at the Lowry Nature Center from 8 - noon. Everyone is welcome.
