Hi everyone,

    I've had a few people ask me for the sites where I check the
nexrad images for indications of migration. The best site is:

    I do have another spot bookmarked with the really long URL below:


   What I like about this one is that it is a composite map that
let's you look at the entire country at one time. I don't know of any
radar sites for Mexico but I'm sure they're out there somewhere. One
person did mention that the gulf coast of Alabama has seen a couple
of fall out mornings so there is at least some movement in the
eastern gulf area. I don't know if there have been any big lift offs
from the Yucatan Peninsula headed to Texas.    
    A good site for a basic introduction to Radar Ornithology is the
Journey North website:


   Again tonight it looks like northward movement in the central U.S.
but further east than last night. This may be due to a cold front
moving south through the Dakotas and Minnesota. I hope this helps
folks find good images for their area.
