Cold Weather Continues

Weather throughout most of the Midwest hasn't been conducive to bird migration the past week. Strong northwest winds have been keeping most migratory birds to our south. The weekend forecast looks pretty bleak for birding, but I'll likely hit the trail anyway.

Some Madison area birders have been finding a few Hermit Thrushes, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, but numbers are well below normal for this time of year. Hopefully warmer temperatures coming the following weekend will bring more birds our way!
