Nick,
I cannot be certain about this bird because it is a mixture of a soaring
bird and a direct flight bird. Like you are saying Nick, it is likely that
it will be headed NNE on the current winds. If it is flying in a direct
flight all night, it could easily end up at Lake Superior. If instead it
is choosing to navigate in soaring flight, we would have a very different
story. Also, because this bird is so far afield from where it should be
and it doesn't make meteorological sense why this bird would be here, I am
not confident in saying what this bird is going to do. I appreciate the
challenge, and it is tough to even communicate this appropriately because
of all the uncertainty that surrounds this bird.

Thanks for pushing me though. I like the way you are thinking about this.
