Hello everyone,

i thought i'd share a wonderful innovation developed by the Lab of O &
oxford university for birders that also has a lot of practical conservation
applications: a tool to forecast bird migrations. just as you might tune in
to the local weather forecast to figure out where you might go to look for
birds based on the weather, there is an online birdcast feature that you
can use to predict bird migratory movements -- as far as three days in
advance!

i hope you find this piece interesting and educational, and that you share
it widely amongst your birding pals.
