No migration in the face of Fay

Please take a few seconds to fill out a very short survey to help badbirdz-reloaded. It will take less than a minute, and can be found here, on (the companion site to Badbirdz-Reloaded). Thanks in advance! -David

Wow… you’re really getting pounded, eh? What the heck are you doing reading this blog… you should be sandbagging your front door! OR LOOKING FOR PELAGICS! Well, you’re here, so I guess you want to see the radar. Here it is, from 7:00pm last night through 5:00am today.

Well, I hope everyone in South Florida is making it through the weather unscathed. Fay sure is impressive on the radar, and as far as I can tell, that’s about all the interesting information you can gather from today’s images. It looks like there was a little push of birds along the north Florida border, but otherwise the state is shut down as far as southbound migrants. As for the pelagics? Well, I can’t tell with the radar- but I sure would be parked somewhere along the coast!

Strong westerlies for the rest of the week could make things interesting on the east coast. We’ll have to wait and see just how much southbound traffic we get leading up to it. In the meantime, stay safe and dry!

Good Birding,
