I am currently participating the the Shaver’s Creek Birding Cup, a 24-hour birding competition to raise money for Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center. Therefore, I will post the radar without any interpretation. Basically the story is that migration is going on like crazy along the Atlantic Coast and the Midwest. It seems like conditions were less conducive along the Appalachians. If you don’t see the radar, check back in a few minutes.

As always, please leave me comments on what you find out in the field.
Check Kenn Kaufman’s blog for more specifics on what to expect this time of year.
