Heavy migration over Florida


Heavy migration was evident across Florida last night, but most notable was the first real movement of birds across the Florida Straits. It looks like birds were flying low, though, as they’re only obvious leaving the Keys and arriving in Cuba, which suggests they gained altitude once again before making landfall….interesting.
Here’s the radar from last night through this sunrise this morning. Unfortunately, my feed for the Miami radar was interrupted, but I’ve got the Key West feed and the Southeast composite below.

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and every hour for the regional composite. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation.

Good Birding!:)
