I had problems with Internet and it took some time to resolve them so I'm later than usual. I regret this.

When will the spring birdies arrive?

Gustave Axelson and Pat Leonard of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology report on the answer given Cornell's BirdCast.

Great essay and map with links to four BirdCast tools and some suggestions on how you can help.

Keep in mind that BirdCast is about "peak periods of spring bird migration -defined as when the nightly average of birds in the night sky was highest...with each radar measuring aerial bird densities every 10 minutes."
While this tool is not (yet) about individual species that appears to be a coming feature of BirdCast. The research is described in the essay.
