Flyway Report 4 Us

Postby Fowlercon » Fri Nov 25, 2005 4:38 pm

As of today......................................


Strong northerly winds, colder air and thickening ice are in store for much of the western portion of the upper flyway. Significant snowfall from the U.P. of Michigan and around the eastern portions of the Great Lakes can hardly help, but put the birds on the move.

Initial reports indicate another influx of birds out of Canada into the upper flyway, with an accompanying shift of birds into the mid tier and lower flyway states having already begun.

The most significant migration for the upper and mid flyway will be for the states around and below the eastern Great Lakes. Heavy Lake Effect snowfall is predicted for that region. As the snow piles up, the migration into and through the area is predicted to be significant.

Southern portions of the flyway should see a boost in waterfowl abundance as the winter weather takes hold in the north. The most significant increase for hunters will probably be in light goose numbers, but an increased concentration of ducks is a safe bet as well.
