Tonight’s Radar Ornithology Forecast
click on the maps to see them enlarge or see the animation.
I was reviewing the Weather Underground website to see what this weekend’s weather was looking like. I then noticed that the NEXRAD images for Western New York showed a large movement of birds moving through the area. Watch the font map (below-right) at the point at 9:30 when bazillion of birds suddenly appear on the map (green)! Now that you know Tom’s Forcast, wake up early (before going to work) and spend some time Birding! If you are not sure how to read these maps, please visit my post “how to observe migration at night” and I hope that this post will answer any question you might have regarding Radar Ornithology.
Almost forgot my three most recent first for 2007 that I found! Purple Martins (CHECK) were seen while driving to an invasive species meeting yesterday evening. Today while checking bluebird boxes; we had a Yellow Warbler (CHECK) and then a House Wren (CHECK) singing. I can’t wait to see what I come across tomorrow (TGIF)!
