Migration Along the West Coast

   Checking radar this morning it looks like a pretty good movement of migrants along the west coast, especially central California and the Pacific Northwest. Should be good birding this weekend. Radar image below is from 8:30 CST of 6:30 Pacific time.
   In the midwest and east the weather is unsettled so I'm not sure there was much movement last night. The really nice weather in my area (Minnesota) has brought in a lot of new species in the last week. All of our lakes have opened (ice-out) and the waterfowl are picking up the pace heading north. First warblers, Yellow-rumps, are showing up and early sparrows are here too.

What website do you normally use to check migration via radar?
