I've been using this Cornell Ornithology real-time migration forecast tool and I want to bring it to your attention in the off chance you haven't seen it. It's called Birdcast. birdcast.info
Carol Elder told me about it. I really like the regional forecasts but they are not easy to find on the site. They used to be accessed through Migration Alerts under the News heading (after you clicked on live bird migration), but for some reason that has disappeared. I thought I'd link to the regional page here. You can click on a region and it will break down the migratory forcast for each species---when they are expected to arrive, peak and depart.
I know this says it's the forecast for September 3-4 but if you click on a region it shows the whole fall migration. There must be a better way to access this information but I couldn't find it this morning. If you have one please let me know.
I'd pretty much given up on the sooty shearwaters but Birdcast says they peak 9/15 so maybe I still have a chance to see them!
