Snowstorm stalls out migration

Regional Overview

The big snow storm of April pretty much stalled out all migration across the region. Expect little to no turnover, however the storms have force some late ducks as well as gulls and terns down to lakes and reservoirs. Check out the radar animations below if you are interested. Wednesday night will probably be the next big push of migrants as winds swing south.
