The Cornell Lab of Ornithology recently released some new tools to better track bird migration, which could be very useful for volunteers participating in Lights Out monitoring efforts. Visit birdcast.info to explore the tools.
They’ve boiled down decades of migration science, coupled it with real-time weather data, and created two simple tools: a 3-day migration forecast, and an up-to-the-moment replay of migration activity.
