Moderate early migration on west winds

Regional Overview

Migration was moderate last night away from the east coast as NW winds seemed to keep a lot of birds down. Most areas showed movement to the NE on the velocity radar indicating the birds were still migrating, just not at the levels of the previous several nights. The early part of the night showed more activity as the winds picked up from the north. A broad range of warblers are now being found in small numbers across the region, Ohio has already reported 20 species of warblers this spring! With less of an influx last night, birds could be moving around to traditional breeding grounds and those areas could be great places to check
