Cool Migration Tool

One way to maximize your Spring birding is to watch the weather for favorable (south) wind patterns. "Wind Map" is an art project that utilizes US wind pattern data to create a dynamic (and very cool looking) visualization of wind flow. While a disclaimer warns not to "use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires", I think it could be very useful for predicting northbound bird movements.
