Light to no Winter Migration in Florida

There was strong ESE->South winds all night triggering little to no migration last night. On the radar it was evident that birds grounded and chose to wait until another day to make their way down. Jacksonville radar was out for a portion of the night but did show some movement early in the night but with the South winds up there the birds were reluctant to fly. Maybe the wintering birds will make it down to South Florida soon on another day.
