All- Why wouldn't we see any activity? In the opening paragraph: "Cone crops are generally low west of a line from Lake Superior to James Bay extending west across the Prairie Provinces, British Columbia and Alaska." Unless the assumption is that all irruptive species will migrate due east? Eric

Basically this means that it's going to be a dismal year for seeing any irruptive species in the western Great Lakes region this winter.

Does anyone have a sense for what this means for northern Wisconsin? The finch forecast is excellent and packed with information, but it is focused on southeastern Ontario, New York, and New England. As a new Wisconsinite, I'm not quite sure whether to expect the same finch bonanza here this year...? Thanks,
