Birds lifting off from New Jersey (PM)

With little to no wind over the state, some birds are on the move tonight. Overall it doesn’t look too impressive, but there are birds moving nonetheless. The cold front that was expected this weekend never made it, and a trough of warm wet air lingers on the east coast (you can see it in the radar). What birds will do east of the front and west of the trough will likely determine what we see in the next few days. The cold front is expected to make it across our area sometime on Wednesday, but that always up in the air…we’ll have to wait and bird, er, see.
