Those birds in the West should go ANY DAY. Last year they'd all taken off by the last week of March.
I wonder what will happen if the weather NEVER gets nice out there! This week in the West looks like a weather
wash-out for the eagles. You will probably see a weather map similar to this one all week.
When it is not raining in the West, the skies will be cloudy with occasional breaks of sunshine. But those breaks
will only occur for very short time periods, and lot of clouds will be around anyway. The eagle data up to March
23rd shows that the eagles still hadn't moved?
As far as this week is concerned, it does not look like conditions will be favorable for movement. However, our
eagles in the West have already shown us some they can find food in the rain, so we should keep an eye on them
anyway. After all, Spring is drawing nearer.
Review of Last Week
Well, the end of the week looked very promising for our eagles. The skies were clear, the sun was shining bright,
and thermals were sure to develop. The time between 3/19 and 3/22 was especially nice, so look at the latest data
and see if these conditions enticed the eagles to move locally--even if they didn't begin to migrate to the north

The conditions in the East for the week will not be bad, but they will not be good either. With winds coming
off the Great Lakes, not only are the eagles going to experience wind from the Northwest, but that wind will also
spawn some cloud cover over the area. The storm that moved into the area on Saturday created a more "winter-like"
feel across the northeast. And with the low pressure moving away from the area, the winds are blowing across the
lakes. Overall, winds should not be much of a factor this week, except for Wednesday. Take a look.
It is going to be sunny in the northeast. The only full day of sun of the week. The rest of the days should
see the sun, but with an abundance of clouds. The sun is likely to be covered up just as much as it is not. Watch
Wednesday and Thursday carefully for any movement.
Review of Last Week
The first part of the week was certainly better for the eagles. In fact, those days were pretty much near perfect
for the eagles to head North. The rest of the week was marked by two storms that hit one after the other. Both
of them were strong. The sun was only out on Monday and Tuesday, but it was out in full force with no clouds blocking
it. Do you think the eagles moved? It looks like Monday and Tuesday, but be careful. What direction was the wind
blowing during those storms? If it was towards the North, the eagles might not have cared about the rain and snow,
and headed North anyway, riding the winds. Check the latest data to find out what happened to the eagles.
