Mississippi River Valey Migration

    Tonight it looks like the majority of migration movement is in Texas and the Mississippi River Flyway.
    Texas and Louisiana have good movement and it looks like Illinois is the heart of movement in the midwest. Further north of this image is not showing much activity at all. From various listserves from around my area (MN, WI, IA) it sounds like new species are arriving in more of a trickle than a wave. That may change as long as the wind is out of the south BUT the forecast for Minnesota Monday and Tuesday is horrible. Falling temps, precipitation that will vary from rain to snow depending on how far north you are and possible blizzard conditions in western and central Minnesota. Mother Nature's April Fool's prank I suppose.

   Got out this weekend and had FOY (first of year) American Coot, Sandhill Crane, Killdeer, Eastern Bluebird and Blue-winged Teal. This year list builds slowly but surely...
