Few birds over South Florida

Only 3 (yes 3!) more days to take the woodcreeper/badbirdz-reloaded, online survey! To the 45(!) of you who took the survey so far, thanks! To those of you considering taking it, let me assure you that It’s quick, painless, and will really help me improve the site, so please take a few seconds to click a couple of buttons. 🙂
Thanks in advance -David

“The wheel in the sky keeps on turning…” What the heck is up with that churning mass that was TS Fay? Geeze! It just wont leave! Here’s the radar from 7:00pm last night through 5:00am this morning.

For some real excitement, check the southeast composite where you can really see some migration… albeit migration from the Florida panhandle into the Gulf of Mexico. Otherwise there’s not much going on for Florida right now. A small push of birds could be seen on the Miami radar, heading east, and the Key West radar heading southeast, but both of these were pretty small and would be difficult to detect on the ground. We’re just going to have to wait for the winds to turn more northwesterly, I’m afraid. In the meantime, go find some more storm birds!

Good Birding,
