Heavy migration

Clear skies and light east winds made for another night of heavy migration over Florida. Because of the easterly component, most birds were heading NW over the southern part of the state. A large flight out of Cuba also took a westerly trajectory, most of which is still heading into the Gulf as I type this. Since many birds are over water right now, and the sun is rising, I would expect a late morning fallout of birds in the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas.

Otherwise, good birding conditions should be apparent along the Gulf Coast and inland sites in South Florida this morning, while spring migrant traps along both coasts should be active in Central and Northern Florida.

Of course, your reports are always encouraged, so please come back and let me know what you’re seeing.

Good Birding
