Possible migration?

For the first time in a number of days, the migration forecast looks promising for tonight. The last few times this happened, nothing materialized for our area.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that tonight will be different and we will get a influx of migrants overnight.  As for birding the last few days, little has changed.  I have had about half a dozen or so species of warblers and a few vireos.  Sparrows are on a slight uptake.  Today, my most enjoyable birding took place right in my yard.  I had returned home for lunch and ran into a nice mix of birds moving through my yard.  5 Blackpoll, 4 Magnolia, 1 Tennessee, 1 Black and White and 1 Yellow-rumped Warbler were present.  Also there were two Blue-headed Vireo and the usual Chickadees, Titmice, Nuthatches and Woodpeckers.  It was fun to actually have a decent size flock to sift through.
