More Birds on the Way

This heavy movement is getting to be an every night occurence but I thought I'd post a snapshot from the National Weather Service Radar in the Texas. Note the almost complete coverage of the state by migrants. Also notice that the radar returns do NOT extend out over the gulf. A nice demonstration that birds don't like to move over water if they don't have to.

For a look at a nationwide view of migration I got his shot from this web site.
