Got 5 inches of snow in central Illinois saw several geese heading south today ! Down to 8 degrees tonight and below zero wind chills ! Warmer Sunday and Monday but it might slow um down even a little more
Schim, looks like a warm up Sunday and all of next week!! Before the snow, the snow geese were hanging around. I think you're right about slowing them down!! Still haven't seen many juries yet. Good Luck!

Saw about a dozen migrating flocks in central Illinois Sunday, started about 10:30 with the first bunch playing nice. After that, all bunches were a mile high and silent rolling NW. If you were not looking directly at them, you would never see them.

Lot of geese staying on refuges along the Illinois river and feeding north west still saw a fair amount this morning heading back to the refuges! Didn’t see any migrators today.... maybe tomorrow
