Movement in the Southeast

From the posts on the local bird chats it appears that there was a good movement of birds into Minnesota and Wisconsin last night. Kinglets (both species), Eastern Phoebes, Killdeer and Hermit Thrushes have shown up in lots of places this morning.

A look at radar at 2100 (9:00 pm) shows lots of movement south of a front traveling across the upper midwest and Great Lakes.

Areas of heaviest migration seems to be northern Florida, Georgia, Alabama and just inching into South Carolina.

Most locations in the gulf area show good movement tonight. Storms are anticipated moving through the region the next 2 days so what arrives may hunker down for a bit.

Reports from a bird banding station near Vera Cruz Mexico is reporting lots of warblers moving with hundreds being caught and banded each day. I can't wait for them to get here!
