Welcome to the home page of the New Jersey Radar-Migration Study.
From April to May, and from August to October on woodcreeper.com, you will find daily posts regarding bird migration over New Jersey. Optimally, each morning I will post radar loops from the previous night, along with my interpretation of the radar and what it might mean for local birding conditions. As time allows, I will also forecast birding conditions for the state of New Jersey using local weather data.
My real goal for this project is to make this website more interactive than ever. Most birdwatchers are also amateur meteorologists, constantly watching the forecast for a sign of favorable weather. I urge you to move beyond the spectator, and become a regular voice on woodcreeper.com. Use the comments section of my posts as a place to add your sightings, weather observations, birding predictions, or anything else regarding migration. If the only thing that gets posted to the site are my predictions, then the site has very little value. If, on the other hand, you provide feedback on the accuracy of my predictions and analyses, then the site can serve as a reference document and help refine future predictions.
