Automated radar generator…

So these images are generated by an automatic generator- which while it makes it possible for me to post the radar from Miami, has its glitches. Namely, it’s putting some of the radar images out of order, which you can see if you watch the animations. These are the loops from sunset last night through sunrise this morning. As you can tell, there was another big push of birds out of Cuba last night, as well as some heavy migration over the entire state. Direction was primarily from the SE –> NW.

Good Birding

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and 1 hour for the regional composite

  1. Banding and observations on Key Biscayne indicate that the bulk of migrants have passed by or moved out. Remaining warblers are mostly Caribbean-wintering birds that quietly forage in the hammock. Very few Blackpolls, Cape May and Tennessee Warblers remain.

  2. This morning I noted 2-3 Redstarts, 2 Blackpolls in the Fla. City area and a Black-throated Blue Warbler at N. Key Largo (Ocean Reef). Over the last few days I’ve come across maybe 7-10 Redstarts & not really looking for them.
