Night 3 of HUGE migration

These new sleeping patters are making it really difficult to get the radar up on time! Wow! The radar was killer last night, with VERY HEAVY migration throughout the state and into the Florida Straits towards Cuba. I’ll post it when I get a chance… but this might be a bit of forewarning that fatherhood is going to trump Badbirdz-Reloaded… anyone want to become the principal migration radar blogger? I’m taking names!

Good Birding

  1. Hey David — Catch the zzzzz’s whenever you can!

    Good diversity in Cape Florida today but not the 18-warbler day like yesterday. Banded 111 today of 18 species, including 57 BTBW. REVI’s unaccounted for so far but WEVI numbers picking up. Still quite a few SWTH in banding site and some night flight evident. Calling WPWI before dawn was a treat. It looked like the big push was more in extreme South Florida and the Keys early this morning.

    The Summer Tanager was a stunning shade of cherry red, made us want to pick up some cherries at the store! What a awesome bird.
    The Gray Kingbird and Common Nighthawk figured that migrating is for suckas! LOL
