Finally a bit of migration despite the winds

Despite some north winds last night, birds decided to migrate. It is that time of year when they realize that they need to head north to their breeding grounds despite the conditions. Pennsylvania, Ohio and Maryland all experienced an influx of birds overnight and I would expect many of the warbler species to be widespread, as well as other migrants such as orioles, tanagers and grosbeaks.

Conditions should actually be much better during the rest of the week for migrants as temperatures rise and winds stay from the south. One interesting aspect will be the scattered storms that look like they will be moving through the entire region, which could set us up for some fallout conditions.

Radar is back up so check the days post with radar.
