When, where, and how far will birds migrate? Our migration forecasts will answer these questions for the first time.
After the passage of the intense and destructive storm Sandy in Fall 2012, BirdCast spent some time discussing the effects of atmospheric blocking patterns on species composition in eastern North America. Based on recent occurrence of a number of European species in eastern North America, we thought it useful to resurrect, albeit briefly, this discussion.
Global Big Day is nearly here, and Team BirdCast wishes all of you birding around the planet an exciting, safe, and diverse day! For those teams birding in the US, we have a special addition of Species on the Move ... Good luck to all!
Global Big Day is almost here, and here's another Species on the Move that teams in Eastern Asia may hope to find!
19-22 April 2019 saw some spectacularly intense weather in the eastern US, with some obvious after effects in terms of migrating birds' distributions. Read on for a brief description of events that presumably carried nocturnally migrating songbirds farther afield that they intended to travel.
Migration is well under way across the globe, and Team BirdCast is highlighting a few species in interactive maps made with eBird data. Check out how the progression of migration for the group of species has changed over the last 30 days.
