  • Heavy migration across mid-Atlantic

    Clear skies and northeasterly winds made for a big night of nocturnal migration across the region. Here’s the radar from 7:00pm last night through 5:00am this morning. Frames are every 1/2 hour.

  • No migration last night

    Only 6 more days to take the woodcreeper/badbirdz-reloaded, online survey! To those of you who took it yesterday, thanks!

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and every hour for the regional composite. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation. With June […]

  • Light migration last night

    While winds persisted out of the northwest yesterday, some birds were able to take advantage of the clear skies and slackening winds after sunset. No radar today, but just a heads-up that some birds were on the move. Good Birding David
