Quiet after Migration

Palm Warbler

I saw my first Palm Warbler of fall migration a few days ago. Though NexRad lit up like fireworks last night, Pheasant Branch was extremely quiet this morning. I noticed that other birders from southern Wisconsin reported similar findings. What migrated last night? Around 8:30 a.m., Dottie and I saw several southbound Killdeer flocks over the prairie. I wonder if they moved en masse last night? Well, something migrated! Alas, NexRad cannot reveal the species.
