Bird Migration on Radar

Fall is the time of the year for bird migration on the Plains states.  This morning, a large number of waterfowl took off from Tuttle Creek Lake near Manhattan, and eventually they formed into a line that can be seen on this radar image from 920 AM.  This very linear formation is relatively rare, but kind of looks like a "bird highway".  They are likely heading for some of the game lakes in southeast Kansas, or the reservoirs in eastern Oklahoma.
