I'm not sure what to make of it this year. We did have an unusual, very scattered weather pattern this spring. Now, a week past May 10, the migration numbers have increased again. Last night nearly two million crossed over Milwaukee County. But I'll be damned if any of them stopped off in my yard. Perhaps they are late this year, and are opting to continue onward, skipping our bird-friendly backyard diner, and heading straight to nesting territories up north. Or the winds caused them to veer further west, and head north from there. The central and western part of Wisconsin has seen very high migration numbers in recent days, as seen in Birdcast.info readings from May 10 shown here.
