Birds Over My Hammy

 

Here’s the radar from sunset last night through 5:00am this morning. Yet another night of moderate to heavy migration over the sunshine state!

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.

It doesn’t look like there was any precipitation present this morning to concentrate birds, so best bets would be the local migrant traps.

Good Birding! 🙂

  1. St. Marks NWR:
    Great-Crested
    Veery
    Red-Eyed vireos
    Yellow-throated warbler
    Several Prairie

    Many shorebirds in Tower pond (peeps, yellowlegs, black terns(?), etc.)
    Dozens of migrating tri-colored herons. Wood storks.

    Phipps park in Tallahassee:
    Swainson’s warbler
    Black and White (2)
    Parula (2, 1 singing)
    Chestnut-sided
    Blackburnian

    My impression is that in the absence of a weather system the birds are dispersed over the area and aren’t really building up at the coast.
