Lots of Migration Movement in the South

The low pressure systems moving through the mid-west are setting up favorable conditions for birds to move in the south and southeastern regions of the U.S. tonight. Behind the front that sits across places like Chicago and St. Louis the movement is noticeably weaker.

We did band this morning and had several migrants in our nets that have showed up in just the past few days. Fox Sparrow, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Song Sparrow are all over the place.

Reports from southern Wisconsin included Yellow rumped Warblers, shorebirds and swallows. Spring is starting to really take off.
