:th:  I've been watching it since dark, and the actual real time map looks just as good as that projected map already..... and it's only 9PM.

 

It will be wild if your in the right areas tomorrow.

 

If you like observing nature, the next 2 weeks are about as good as it gets for migrating birds.

If it's quiet you can hear them chirping up there. 

I went out last night to listen but the wind was howling, too loud. Didn't hear any.

I never knew any of this.

I didn't either.

Initially came across the posting about mass bird migration on a weather discussion page. Turns out weather radars are good for more than just tracking storms. Anything interrupting that beam leaves a distinct signature, from smoke to bugs and birds to debris lofted skyward in tornadoes.
