Bird Migration Ramps Up!

Winds are ripe for migration, birds are on the wing and headed your way! Take a look at how winds affect migration. Where winds are optimal, migration is very evident on the radar image. Birds look for a tailwind which help minimize fuel consumption during the flight.

Radars in the central and the northern region of the state picked up some considerable migration overnight. Check out these images from 12:30am.

With winds pushing birds north and west, expect best birding locations to be on the west coast of the state and into the panhandle. Please let us know what you run into our there and what conditions were like where you birded.
