Migrants Still on Their Way

The radar images from Saturday night show that there are still many migrants on the move especially in the lower Great Lakes all the way into places like Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. For all of you despairing that the migration might be over, the only place that looks like they're into summer is the far south. Movement there is pretty quiet.

The storm system that has affected the midwest for the last few days has finally moved on an that means the floodgates might be open, that's what we hope for anyway. Banding tomorrow should tell us whether we still have birds arriving in Minnesota.

Lots of birds already passed through here in Northern VA. I haven't seen a new transit bird in a few weeks.
