Spring migration is really starting to show on the radar, last night a strong east wind helped birds migrating from the east but did not hold back a nice push into the Keys from Cuba. There should be some new birds around today, a rarity or two won’t hurt. Birds came into the Miami radar from northern Miami-Dade to South Dade, not in big numbers but enough that new birds will be in the area. Good Birding to everyone, enjoy the nice weather and beautiful birds that Florida has to offer.

Please post all sightings, they will be greatly appreciated.
