Like Saturday night, last night was another night of lackluster bird movement in the northeast while the Central Flyway was lit up with birds. As normal March temperatures return we may see a decrease in new early arrivals, since those birds are already here. Still, birds are around and they should be looking for the best available habitat to forage … Read More

Looking at the late evening radar last night you can see that birds are on the move across much of the northeast. A large storm is also working its way through the region which appears to be hitting central PA at about the right time to bring down some birds as they avoid migrating through the rain once they hit … Read More

Migration was good over our region last night with a lot of birds showing on the radar.
