This is the radar from 5:00pm last night to 10:00am this morning.

Not much going on last night besides a new batch of migrants entering the state from the south. We expect these migrants to spread thin thus being less detectable. Look out for migrants at your favorite migrant traps as well as take the chance to study the wintering birds before they head back north.

Currently weather conditions are less than ideal and we expect a dry forecast through the weekend which means less birds for us. We hope things change in our favor so we will be keeping an eye on conditions and report back.

As always, Badbirdz depends on YOU to report your sightings and be our ‘eyes on the ground’, so please come back and give us an idea of what you are seeing in your neck of the woods. This will help us better understand the radar images and in return we can pass this knowledge onto you 🙂
