Mass of migrating birds to head over Wisconsin this week

Look up at the sky, Wisconsin! A stream of migrating birds is heading over Wisconsin from the southern United States. 

According to the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative, there is currently a pipeline of birds migrating up the central United States, triggered by south winds. 

A radar image taken around midnight Sunday shows the birds making their way north.

The group says the south winds are expected to shift eastward Sunday -- bringing the migrating birds to Wisconsin from Sunday evening through Wednesday. 

WBCI said Wisconsinites can expect to see Baltimore orioles, rose-breasted grosbeaks, ruby-throated hummingbirds and various warblers.
