I really like this animated map. Open the flood gates here they come. lol. Nice work on the animated maps.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.

So, Me being on the coast of NC (Jacksonville) where is the main wave of SY's? Do they come from FL or TX?

Thanks!

Just got all of my cooling caps as well as some Clinger tunnels to try.

Yours will come up through FL or maybe through AL - TX flyway birds go straight north for most part, through TX, OK, KS, Dakotas, and into MN and Canada - that's what we know from geolocator recoveries to date.
