Little-to-no migration last night

East/southeasterly flow over the region did little to trigger migration last night. Here’s the radar from 7:00pm last night through 5:00am this morning

Last night was more of the same for the Sunshine state. Only the northern reaches of the state showed any significant signs of migration, while the radar over south Florida was relatively quiet. A small pulse of birds could be seen leaving the southern Everglades for the Keys, and an equally small pulse headed south over Miami, but neither of these should result in appreciable differences on the ground.

Good Birding,

  1. Sunday we birded the Cape for a little while in between net runs and found a nice variety of Warblers around. We saw the male Golden-winged Warbler that was banded yesterday foraging off the pond trail. These guys are so fast! Its feeding behavior reminds us both of the Carolina Chickadee. The GWWA was seen with a small flock consisting of a Black-and-white, BG Gnatcatcher, A. Redstart, and some Black-throated Blue Warbler. The Acadian was heard all day long but no luck. We also found a Blue-winged Warbler which is always nice. What an awesome weekend two GWWA in two days will have to do.
    We celebrated with an Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout, an awesome beer to celebrate an awesome day.

    Banded birds on Sunday included:
    WEVI, REVI, BGGN, VEER, SWTH (9), MAWA, BTBW, PRAW, BAWW, AMRE, SWWA, OVEN, NOWA, COYE and NOCA.

  2. Little-to-no-migration groundtruthed today at SFBO. Other than a porky White-eyed Vireo, the birds were in no condition to migrate and a few of them were hard luck cases. No change-over of migrants noted and we’re probably seeing residual birds unable to leave until they fatten up.
