Migration Forecast

I was up early and ready to head out to look for migrants this morning…and then I heard the raindrops on the roof. My radar on my phone showed green all over the state, and a 50% rain forecast by 9am. Never mind on the birding trip… (and then it cleared up mid-morning! not fair!)

So here’s a migrant picture from last fall. The Yellow Warblers are so bright and cheerful against gray icky days like today.

I also wanted to share the link for this bird migration forecast website. They post predictions for migration based on weather patterns and on bird radar imagery. Check it out!
