Down in Texas

I took a look at the national radar at about 11:00 pm and saw lots of movement in the southern tier of states but not much in the upper midwest. I did take a screen shot of the radar at Brownsville Texas and I believe we're starting to see migrants moving up from Mexico.
You'll notice lots of color around McAllen but nothing really out over the gulf. This is because birds tend not to fly over water unless they have too. The birds moving into Texas are following the coastline. A look at a broader radar picture shows movement all through Texas.

Not much happening in Minnesota right now so I'm waiting patiently for these birds to get here in a couple of weeks.
